WFP: Half a Million Palestinians in Gaza Suffer from Catastrophic Levels of Hunger

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) revealed that half a million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip face catastrophic levels of hunger and urged for an immediate ceasefire in the Strip.

The WFP stated on its social media platform “X” that due to unreliable access and limited stocks, families often do not receive the full rations and frequency they need.

Since Oct. 7, 2023, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) have been waging a devastating war on the Gaza Strip, resulting in more than 125,000 Palestinian martyrs and wounded, most of whom are children and women, while there are more than 10,000 missing persons.

With the continued prevention of the entry of aid and the limitation of goods, the circle of famine expands throughout the Strip, claiming the lives of dozens of Palestinians, especially children.
