Humanitarian aid to those affected in the Gaza Strip is reaching the enclave in too small quantities to cover the needs of the population, said Rami Mehdawi, an adviser to the Palestinian Labor Minister.
According to him, the hostilities have moved to a new stage, in which the civilian population of Gaza is faced with a lack of food and water.
“A new phase of the war has begun. People there (in Gaza) are now struggling with hunger and thirst. Aid is coming in limited quantities, but it is by no means sufficient to meet the needs of Gazans,” Mehdawi said in an interview with the Turkish newspaper Yeni Şafak.
It is noted that Israel also blocked the West Bank of the Jordan River. The majority of the region’s population currently does not have the opportunity to engage in agriculture.
“They throw stones at civilian cars. Now 90% of people cannot go to their fields, and the harvest will be destroyed,” he added.
It was previously reported that the United States is opposing action by the UN Security Council to allow Israel to continue military operations in the Gaza Strip. Read more about this in material Public News Service.
