Oxfam: Incessant IDF Strikes Making Gaza Aid Deliveries “Virtually Impossible”

“A leading global humanitarian group said Tuesday that the Israeli military’s relentless bombing campaign in the Gaza Strip and continued obstruction of aid operations there have made efforts to deliver food, medicine, and other assistance to desperate Gazans ‘virtually impossible’. Oxfam International noted in a statement that two-thirds of Gaza’s population — roughly 1.7 million people — is now packed into less than a fifth of the occupied enclave, often in areas with little to no access to the meager humanitarian assistance that Israel has allowed to enter in recent months. According to the latest United Nations figures, the amount of aid entering Gaza has plummeted by 67% since Israeli forces launched their ground assault on Rafah last month. More than a million people have fled Rafah since early May, the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East said Monday.” (06/04/24)
