‘Many More Will Die’: U.N. Official Issues Dire Warning on Gaza
Philippe Lazzarini, the head of the United Nations agency that aids Palestinians, appealed for more food, water and fuel to sustain its operation.
As we speak, people in Gaza are dying. They are not only dying from bombs and strike, soon, many more will die from the consequences of siege imposed on the Gaza Strip. Basic services are crumbling. Medicine is running out. Food and water are running out. The streets of Gaza have started overflowing with sewage. Gaza is on the brink of a massive health hazard. And the risk of diseases are looming. I warned that we will not be able to continue our humanitarian operation if we do not get the fuel supply. My warning still stands. These fuel trucks are nothing more than a crumbs that will not make a difference for the two million people in the street. The current system in place is geared to fail. What is needed is meaningful and uninterrupted aid flow.
