The blockade has left the population struggling with hunger and thirst, according to a statement from the United Nations on Tuesday.

"In Gaza’s burning summer heat, children have to wait in long queues to access minimal amounts of water," the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said on X, formerly known as Twitter. "Thousands of families are forced to rely on dirty sea water for their daily needs. Safe and unimpeded humanitarian access to the Gaza Strip is urgently needed to save lives," it added.

UNRWA Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini issued a stark warning, describing Gaza as a "living hell" for its more than 2 million residents. He highlighted the severe impact of the conflict on daily life and the urgent need for humanitarian intervention.

The Integrated Food Security Phase Classification's latest report also underscored the severity of the crisis, indicating a "high and sustained risk" of famine across the Gaza Strip as long as the conflict continues. The prolonged blockade and destruction of essential infrastructure have exacerbated food insecurity, making it difficult for residents to access sufficient and safe supplies.

The UN and various humanitarian organizations are calling for immediate action to ensure safe and unimpeded access to Gaza, stressing that such measures are crucial to prevent further deterioration of the humanitarian situation and to save lives. (ILKHA)
