According to the United Nations, aid to the Gaza Strip has dropped by 67% since the closure of the Rafah crossing on May 7.

This was stated by UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric at a press conference held on Wednesday.

Based on the information received from colleagues on the ground, Dujarric noted that the Israeli bombardment continues intensively.

A UN official revealed a 67% drop in aid flows since the closure of the Rafah crossing on 7 May.

Dujarric explained that “health agencies and other services are closing one after the other, and the displacement due to the attacks also affects the distribution of resources.”

He emphasized that “only one hospital in Rafah is partially functional and that the United Nations and its partners are doing their best despite all the circumstances.”

Gaza’s health ministry announced on Tuesday that all hospitals in Rafah have stopped providing services, following an Israeli ground attack on the city since May 6.

Israel continues the war, ignoring the International Criminal Court’s intention to issue an international arrest warrant against its Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and his Defense Minister, Yoav Galanti, for their responsibility for “war crimes” and “crimes against humanity.” Gaza.

Israel has besieged the Gaza Strip for 18 years, and its war has forced some two million residents of the enclave, or about 2.3 million Palestinians, to flee under dire conditions, with severe shortages of food, drinking water and medicine.
