The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) reported that 75 percent of the Gaza population has been forcibly displaced by Israel since October. 

UNRWA mentioned in a post on X on Wednesday that many of these individuals have been displaced multiple times, up to 4 or 5 times. 

The agency highlighted the dire situation faced by Palestinian families, stating that military operations and bombardments have left them with nowhere to go, as buildings have been destroyed and safety is scarce in Gaza.

 Recent Israeli attacks on the southern and northern parts of Gaza have led to a mass exodus of hundreds of thousands of people and severely limited aid access. Israel's latest wave of forced displacement, starting on May 9, has forced residents of Rafah to flee, with over 900,000 people having left the city so far. 

UNRWA facilities in Khan Younis have seen a 35 percent increase in occupancy since May 6, as they provide shelter for displaced Palestinians. Despite the urgent need for aid in Gaza, the occupying regime obstructs UNRWA's efforts to deliver assistance to the starving population. UNRWA has historically been a crucial source of support for the people of Gaza.
