Israel’s strict blockade has cut off vital resources and left the territory facing a humanitarian disaster :......
..More than a week after Israel imposed a “complete siege” and cut off entry of supplies to Gaza, people in the territory are facing an unprecedented crisis.
Hundreds of thousands in the north of the Gaza Strip have fled their homes after Israel issued an evacuation order in preparation for an expected ground invasion – but they have nowhere safe to go to. For more than a week, Israeli airstrikes have pummelled Gaza in retaliation for an attack by Hamas militants that killed 1,300 people.
According to the UN, 1 million Palestinians have been driven from their homes in Gaza, and the Palestinian health ministry says 2,329 Palestinians have been killed since hostilities began.
The only crossing between Egypt and Gaza has been bombed, and Cairo and Hamas have not let people out.
Power is off, clean water is scarce, and the last fuel for hospital emergency generators could expire, leaving Gaza facing a humanitarian crisis.
For a number of days, the focus of foreign diplomats has been the Rafah crossing that connects Egypt with Gaza, where a convoy of trucks with supplies is waiting on the Egyptian side. Attempts have been made to reach a ceasefire that would allow the aid to come in, while foreigners trapped in Gaza could leave.
Early on Tuesday, the US secretary of state, Antony Blinken, said an agreement to allow in aid had been reached with Israel, but the details remained unclear.
