War on Palestine: Gaza is starving to death – WHO reveals

The World Health Organization’s emergencies director Michael Ryan has said that Gaza is suffering under constraints on humanitarian aid, according to Qatar broadcaster Al Jazeera.

Israel has consistently stymied aid delivery efforts in Gaza, where severe hunger is widespread and the risk of famine continues to grow.

“This is a population that is starving to death,” Ryan said at a press conference on Wednesday. “This is a population that is being pushed to the brink and they are not parties to this conflict.” Meanwhile, the enclaved Strip’s health ministry has released an update on the dire humanitarian situation at the Nasser and al-Amal hospitals.

Things are “getting worse” at Khan Younis’ two major medical complexes, the ministry said. The situation “threatens the death of many wounded and sick people as a result of targeting and the lack of medical capabilities”, it continued, adding that both hospitals have run out of food.
