The humanitarian crisis in Gaza

The suffering of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip has reached unprecedented levels as a result of Israel's continued bombardment and blockade. People are living an inhumane life due to a lack of food, water, and electricity. Medical services are about to be stopped due to a shortage of medical supplies and electricity.

Egypt's Rafah border crossing was promised to open on Monday to allow foreign nationals and dual-citizen Palestinians to leave the besieged Gaza and reach emergency aid amid a humanitarian crisis in Gaza, but ultimately failed to do so.

Rumors of a cease-fire surrounding the opening of the Rafah crossing, however, were rejected by both sides. Diplomatic efforts by Israel's main ally, the United States, are continuing to defuse tensions amid the ongoing conflict.

humanitarian disaster

Millions of residents of besieged Gaza face a dire humanitarian crisis. There is panic, anger, and despair everywhere in the township.

Residents of northern Gaza have been running south with their belongings for their lives since Israel announced a three-pronged offensive. Meanwhile, the sudden influx of hundreds of thousands of people into densely populated southern Gaza has further complicated the situation. Water, food, and fuel shortages have made life miserable for Gazans.

Mona Abdel Hamid, a resident of Gaza City, the largest city in the north, said, "There is no electricity, water, or internet."


It seems that I have lost humanity.

Sabah Masbah said, 'The biggest problem is water. None of us have been taking a bath for days due to a lack of water.'

Yad al-Bozom, the spokesperson of the Hamas administration's Ministry of Interior, said that Israel has stopped the supply of clean water for the past 10 days. So residents of Gaza are drinking unsanitary water, which can lead to serious health crises.

Philip Lazzarini, head of the United Nations relief agency UNRWA, said, "In Gaza

My colleagues are no longer able to provide humanitarian aid. We are on the brink of collapse. It is absolutely unprecedented.'

Lazzarini fears that Gaza is running out of water and electricity. Soon, food and medicine will also run out. He said, 'We all know that water is life. But water is running out in Gaza, and so is life.'

UN humanitarian chief Martin Griffiths is due to travel to the Middle East today to discuss emergency aid access to Gaza.

The Arab League called for an immediate cessation of military operations and the provision of relief supplies. In addition, China has announced plans to provide humanitarian assistance to various United Nations organizations located in Palestine.


Congestion at the Rafah border

Since the complete blockade of the Gaza Strip, many foreign nationals and dual passport holders have flocked to Egypt's Rafah crossing to leave Gaza. Hundreds of trucks carrying relief aid are also waiting to enter Palestine through this crossing. Discussions on opening the Rafah crossing were held on Monday morning, but it remained closed until yesterday. As a result, foreigners waiting there and Palestinians with dual citizenship are stuck in Gaza. Egypt's Foreign Minister, Sameh Shokri, said that Israel is not allowing the Rafah crossing to open.

Cairo claims that the Egyptian side of the Rafah crossing is still operating, but infrastructure on the Palestinian side has been severely damaged by Israeli bombardment.

Ahmad al-Qassas, a dual citizen of Palestine and Germany who is waiting at the Rafah crossing, said, "We have been at the border for three days. People are constantly coming here.'

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, returning to Israel after a tour of Arab countries in the Middle East, yesterday called for the opening of the Rafah crossing.

It should be noted that the Rafah crossing is located in the southern part of Gaza, bordering the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt. The crossings to Israel are completely closed.


Rumors of a cease-fire are denied.

The United States, Israel, and Egypt have agreed to a ceasefire along with the opening of the Rafah border crossing, Reuters reported. However, Israel and Hamas rejected this claim. The Israeli Prime Minister's Office said in a statement that there was no ceasefire in Gaza in return for the withdrawal of foreigners.

Hamas also said it had no information about a ceasefire in southern Gaza.

Israel has announced an all-out offensive by water, land, and air soon. As part of this, they have deployed hundreds of tanks around the Gaza border.

Israeli bombardment continues in southern Gaza's Khan Yunis and Rafah. Most of the casualties are children.

Hamas said they fired rockets at Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. They claim that the session of the Israeli Knesset has been suspended due to the rocket attack.

On the other hand, in view of the growing tension with Hezbollah, Israel has announced the evacuation of people from the area of a few kilometers along the border with northern Israel.


Biden's warning

US President Joe Biden has warned Israel against taking over the Gaza Strip, despite talking about eliminating Hamas. In an interview, he said, "Reoccupying the Gaza Strip would be the biggest mistake." Israeli officials said they had no such intention.


Diplomatic activities and rhetoric

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has threatened Iran and Lebanon's armed group, Hezbollah. "Don't test our willpower," he said. Don't make the same mistakes over and over again. This time, you have to pay a high price.

Russian President Vladimir Putin was scheduled to speak with Netanyahu on the phone for the first time since the start of the war. He will also talk to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.

Israel's Western ally Germany has banned Iran from adding fuel to the fire. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi spoke on the phone to end the war.
