European foreign policy chief Josep Borrell says after meetings in Washington that the humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza was not a natural disaster but a “man-made” one.

Borrell, in a briefing with reporters at the EU’s offices in Washington, says that world leaders needed to put more pressure on Israel to open borders for humanitarian access to Gaza.
