Difficulties in Gaza

Displaced Palestinians are facing increasing difficulties in feeding their children due to Israel's strict restrictions on humanitarian aid entering Gaza. Many mothers are struggling to produce enough milk to breastfeed, and parents are turning to health centers for infant formula. Aid workers in the conflict-torn region note that the civilian population has lost a significant amount of weight as a result of food shortages.

In the northern Gaza region, residents are desperately seeking assistance. Local healthcare workers report difficulties in providing life-saving treatment due to the widespread destruction of the healthcare system caused by the attacks and Israel's blockade.

The hunger situation is serious

The published number of deaths from malnutrition and dehydration refers only to cases that reached hospitals, indicating that the real total of deaths from hunger or thirst could be much higher. Palestinian authorities claim that 72% of the victims are women and children, and warn of the seriousness of the situation, describing the famine in northern Gaza as reaching deadly levels.
