With a total population of approximately 2.3 million residents, Gaza sees around 80% dependent on humanitarian assistance, largely attributed to the prolonged hostilities with Israel. Although Hamas governs the region, Israel maintains control over its airspace, shoreline, and enforces restrictions on the movement of people and goods across its borders.

Officials have issued a stark warning that Gaza is on the brink of running out of fuel, with supplies expected to deplete within the next 24 to 72 hours. The UN’s humanitarian agency, OCHA, echoes concerns, indicating that fuel reserves may last only a few days. Prior to the recent restrictions, Gaza residents were grappling with extensive food insecurity, limited mobility, and water scarcity.

The Foreign Ministry has reported that air strikes have targeted a United Nations school in Gaza, where hundreds of civilians, including children and the elderly, sought refuge.

The United Nations has confirmed the attack, noting severe damage to the school but thankfully no casualties.

There are reports of airstrikes hitting a mosque and residential homes, with a tragic incident in Rafah resulting in the loss of 19 lives from the same family.

The UN has declared that 123,538 individuals in Gaza have been displaced, primarily due to concerns for their safety and the destruction of their homes, with 73,000 people finding shelter in schools.
