UNRWA chief: current state of Gaza aid ‘hardly enough for humanitarian response’

The current state of aid in Gaza is “hardly enough for humanitarian response if we want to reverse the impact of the siege of Gaza Strip”, UNRWA chief Philippe Lazzarini said on Sunday.

In an interview with CBS’s Face the Nation, Lazzarini, the head of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees said that a lot more aid is required in Gaza.

He said:

Since … the beginning of the truce, we have seen a significant increase of trucks entering into Gaza. I would say on the first day we had an average of 40 trucks, which was far, far, far too little compared to the immense need in the Gaza Strip. And now I would say over the last few days, we had an average of 160 to 200 trucks crossing Rafah and entering into Gaza. Having said that, I do believe that the 200 are hardly enough for the humanitarian response if we want to reverse the impact of the siege in the Gaza Strip, but we need also commercial flow.

Three Palestinian students were shot and wounded in Vermont on Saturday night, prompting the Palestinian foreign ministry to call for the “arrest, investigation, accountability and publishing of the investigation results”.

The students, who Palestinian officials identified as Hisham Awartani, Tahseen Ahmed and Kinnan Abdalhamid, were on their way to a family dinner when they were shot and wounded.

The head of the Palestinian mission to the UK, Husam Zomlot, said that each of the victims were wearing the Palestinian keffiyeh when they were attacked.

In a statement on Twitter/X, the Palestinian foreign ministry said that it “strongly condemned” the attacks and called on authorities to swiftly investigate the attacks and hold those responsible to account.

The shootings, for which police have not announced any suspects or arrests, come amid a rise in Islamophobia and anti-Arab sentiments across the US, in addition to antisemitism following the escalation of violence between Israel and Hamas on 7 October.

Here is the full story on the attacks:
