The UN World Food Programme (WFP) affirmed that humanitarian operations in Gaza are close to collapse, due to the entry of "the lowest amount of humanitarian goods entering Gaza since December, making the risk of famine very real."

The WFP said in a press statement: "Fewer than 100 trucks have entered southern Gaza since 6 May."

"The limited functionality of the southern border crossings, key arteries for getting aid in, means that barely any fuel or aid is getting into any part of Gaza," it added.

The Programme indicated that "all bakeries in Rafah have shut down. However, WFP is still able to support six bakeries in Central Gaza, four in Gaza City and, since Monday (21 May), one in Jabalia."

For his part, UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a press briefing that "since 6 May, nearly 815,000 people have been displaced from Rafah, with about 100,000 others displaced in the north."

"Over the past 10 days, nearly 150,000 people have registered with UNRWA in Khan Younis theyve registered to receive services from UNRWA with a 36% increase in the number of people at UNRWA facilities there," he added.

The unprecedented Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip by sea, land and air has continued since Oct. 7, 2023, causing a complete humanitarian catastrophe embodied by tens of thousands of martyrs, wounded and missing persons, and massive destruction of infrastructure and vital facilities.
