On Wednesday, United Nations spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said that the UN has suspended movements at night in Gaza for 48 hours to evaluate security issues following the killing of 7 members of the World Central Kitchen food charity

In a statement, he said: "The suspension started on Tuesday. The World Food Programme is continuing operations during the day, including daily efforts to send convoys to the north of Gaza "where people are dying." 

He also affirmed the need for humanitarian staff and supplies to be able to move freely and safely across the Gaza Strip.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has claimed Israel killed seven people working for World Central Kitchen in a Gaza airstrike on Monday by mistake, prompting condemnations and calls for explanations from the United States and other allies.
