The UN agency for Palestinian refugees says the situation in the besieged Gaza Strip is “catastrophic” and deteriorating “by the minute.”

“We call the world to not look away. It’s time for humanity to prevail,” the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) said in a post on X.


Reports of hunger and malnutrition are rife. By depriving Gaza of food and water, Israel's assault is literally starving children to death across the besieged Palestinian territory.

Aid agencies have sounded the alarm over child starvation in Gaza, which is witnessing the fastest deterioration in a population's nutrition status on record.

On social media, images from northern Gaza show kids scavenging through torn bags and on the ground to find grains for making soup. Videos show a severely dehydrated and malnourished boy crying.
