Dire Food Situation in Gaza Amid Limited Aid Deliveries, Says U.N.

Gaza is experiencing a "dire" food situation, with just over 300 aid trucks entering the strip since Israel began its offensive in Rafah, according to a United Nations humanitarian agency report on Friday. The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) stated that ongoing hostilities have rendered over 3,000 metric tons of food in main warehouses inaccessible. Since May 6, limited supplies have entered Gaza, insufficient to meet the soaring needs.

The Israeli seizure of the Palestinian side of the Rafah border crossing with Egypt on May 7 halted aid deliveries through Rafah. The situation in Khan Younis and Deir al Balah continues to worsen as hundreds of thousands of Palestinians flee Israeli operations in Rafah. Between May 6 and May 16, nearly 640,000 people were displaced from Rafah, leaving no remaining stocks of shelter materials inside Gaza, according to the U.N.

The U.N. agency emphasized the need for more aid to be allowed through checkpoints into Gaza by land. OCHA spokesperson Jens Laerke stressed that aid must reach those in need and should not rely solely on the floating dock, built by the U.S. military, which has started funneling aid to the enclave.
