Thousands of people were destroyed in the warehouses and distribution centers of UN Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) in the center and south of Gaza Stripcontrolled by the Islamist group Hamasand supplies stored there have been taken, the humanitarian agency reported on Sunday.
They pointed out that these people took wheat flour and other “survival” items such as hygiene equipment, and that in one of the raided warehouses, in Deir al-Balahlocated in the center of the Strip, there are supplies arriving in humanitarian convoys from Egypt.
In a statement, UNRWA Gaza Affairs Director Thomas Whiteindicated that “this is a worrying sign that civil order has broken down after three weeks of war and a tight siege on Gaza.”
“People are scared, frustrated and desperate. The tension and fear are aggravated by the cutting of the telephone and internet communication lines. They feel isolated, cut off from their families inside. Gaza and the rest of the world,” he lamented.
UNRWA stressed in its note that the large-scale displacement of people from the north to the south of the Strip is putting “great pressure” on communities in the southern part, adding more burden to already deteriorating public services.
According to the agency’s data, so far some 80 humanitarian aid trucks They entered the Gaza Strip last week by crossing the Rafah, border with Egypt. However, this aid was not enough, considering that before the war, there were hundreds of aid trucks passing by every day.
UNRWA is currently overseeing the receipt and storage of that aid in the Palestinian enclave, and indicated that no convoy could enter on Saturday due to a telecommunications outage.
This Sunday, the Palestinian telecommunications company Jawwal announced that internet and telephone connections are gradually being restored in Gaza, after they were disrupted on Friday by the expansion of the Israeli Army’s ground operations.
Israel y Hamas They have been at war since October 7, after the Palestinian Islamist group attacked Israeli territory and left 1,400 dead, about 5,000 wounded and 230 hostages they took to Gaza.
In return, Israel pumping Gaza since then, and since last Friday it has been attacking with tanks inside the Strip, causing about 7,700 Palestinian deaths and nearly 19,000 wounded.
