As the Israeli military operation in Rafah enters its fourth week, nearly one million people are displaced from southern Gaza into Deir Al-Balah and Khan Younis, and forced to live in desperate living conditions in extremely overcrowded shelters. 

After visiting southern and central Gaza, an International Rescue Committee (IRC) expert revealed that women and children are most at risk of violence, exploitation, and abuse.

Since the closure of the Rafah crossing earlier this month and the issuance of evacuation orders in the south and the north, the humanitarian situation continues to deteriorate. 

Following the closure, aid workers, humanitarian aid, and critically needed fuel are still not able to enter Gaza. Consequently, some aid programs are currently suspended and relocated to other areas, hindering essential humanitarian activities including protection services while vulnerable groups face increasing risks.
