According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), there is a severe shortage of milk, formula, and nutritional supplements for infants, children, and pregnant or breastfeeding women in southern Gaza.

In a report, Ocha said there are an estimated 60,000 to 75,000 people in Al Mawasi, a coastal area west of Rafah that the military has declared a safe zone.

The UN body noted that while food deliveries to northern Gaza had improved, humanitarian workers there were finding it more difficult to do their job.

“Staff spend five to eight hours waiting at checkpoints every day. Missiles hit our premises, despite being deconflicted," it mentioned.

Notably, Israel's military continues to attack sites across Gaza, including Al Mawasi, in the ninth month of its war against the Hamas militant group.
