With most people living in tents during the winter, the situation in the Gaza Strip has gotten progressively worse.
This is how UNRWA Deputy Director Scott Anderson described the dire humanitarian situation of displaced Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
Speaking to CNN, Anderson said that “the pressure on the residents of Gaza is enormous. We do not know how long they will bear these harsh conditions without food, shelter, and water.”
“The situation has become very difficult, especially since we are in the winter, and most of the population is living in tents,” he said, noting that “Gaza has turned into a city of tents, and its residents are doing their best to live their lives and take care of their children.”
On October 7, the Israeli occupation army launched a genocide war against the people of the Gaza Strip, claiming the lives of thousands of victims, mostly women and children.
Since then, the Israeli occupation army has cut off all power, water, fuel, and food supplies to the people of the Gaza Strip, bombed bakeries, factories, stores, and water stations, and destroyed civilian infrastructure facilities.
The Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip constitutes a blatant violation of international humanitarian and human rights law as it exposes civilians’ lives to extreme danger, which requires an immediate international intervention.
