“The ban is a sincere expression of solidarity and humanitarian cooperation with our brothers and sisters in the Gaza Strip,” Sharjah Police wrote on Facebook.

Since October 7 2023, the Israeli occupation has continued to carry out attacks non-stop air, sea and land in the Gaza Strip which caused dozens of Palestinian civilians to lose their lives.

At least 21,320 Palestinian civilians were martyred and 55,601 were injured in Israel’s indiscriminate attacks, according to data from local health authorities.

Israel’s onslaught also caused devastation in the Gaza Strip with 60 percent of buildings damaged and nearly two million civilians displaced amid a crisis of food, clean water and medicine. (T/RE1/P2)
