Aid deliveries to Gaza fell by two-thirds since Israel’s invasion of Rafah

The United Nations, which has warned of famine in the Gaza Strip, said Wednesday that the amount of humanitarian aid entering the enclave has fallen by two-thirds since Israel began its military operation in the southern Rafah region this month.

“The amount of food and other aid entering Gaza, already insufficient to meet rising needs, has shrunk further since May 7,” the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said.

From May 7 to Tuesday, an average of 58 aid trucks reached Gaza daily, compared to a daily average of 176 aid trucks from April 1 to May 6, OCHA said. This represents a decrease of 67%.
