The United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief, Martin Griffiths, stated that the delivery of lifesaving to those affected in Gaza is no longer feasible.
"Our ability to reach the people of Gaza with relief remains grossly inadequate, and not for want of trying," said Grifiths.
According to OCHA, there is a severe shortage of surgical equipment and sutures in Gaza, and the hospitals have only four days' worth of fuel left to power their generators. Due to continuous bombardment for several months, three out of every four Gazans have been displaced, with more than half being children. Consequently, they are suffering from extreme shortages of food, water, shelter, and medicine.
The UN agency assisting Palestine refugees (UNRWA) has also warned that attacks on schools that are sheltering internally displaced people are continuing.
