U.N. Agency Halts Aid Deliveries to Northern Gaza Amid Reports of Famine

The United Nations agency responsible for Palestinian affairs has announced a suspension of aid deliveries to northern Gaza due to the inability to carry out effective humanitarian operations in the area, where reports of famine are increasing.

The U.N. has been issuing warnings about "pockets of famine" in Gaza for the past month, with the situation particularly dire in the north. Conditions have continued to deteriorate, leading to a surge in hungry individuals resorting to desperate measures to access aid from passing trucks.

Tamara Alrifai, the director of external relations for the U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), expressed concern about the challenging circumstances, stating that the actions of hungry and exhausted people are hindering the safe and regular passage of aid trucks. She emphasized the need to communicate this situation sensitively, avoiding any implication of blame or criminality.
