Desperate Palestinians fleeing Gaza by boat – hundreds drown

Thousands of desperate Palestinians from Gaza are risking death to flee in small boats seeking asylum in Europe.  They are being extorted by smugglers.  Many are dying at sea.  This week alone more than 450 drowned off the coast of Malta when their ship sunk.  Though the Israelis control all coming and going to Gaza, including by sea, apparently they are not doing anything to stop the Palestinian exodus.  Conditions in Gaza are now so horrible and hopeless that terrible risks are being taken by desperate Palestinians.
