UNRWA: One million displaced people from the northern Gaza Strip live in 156 centres

Gaza (UNA/QNA) - The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) confirmed that one million displaced people from the north to the south of the Gaza Strip live in 156 centres.

Adnan Abu Hasna, spokesman for UNRWA, said today that UNRWA is the only cohesive body in the Gaza Strip that distributes aid to the displaced.

He added that 108 employees of the agency were martyred since the beginning of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, which is the largest number in the history of the United Nations, as such a number had never been lost during this period.

According to what the agency announced, it is currently accommodating in its facilities a number of displaced people, 4-9 times greater than its normal capacity.

The agency indicated that before the Israeli aggression, 500 trucks entered the Gaza Strip daily, and they barely provided for the livelihood of Palestinian citizens, but since the beginning of the aggression until today, the number of trucks that have entered the Gaza Strip daily is only enough for only 3 days, stressing that a return to the ceiling of 500 will be sufficient. A truck as it was before is no longer enough at the moment.

She explained that she normally needed 75 trucks per day, but now due to the catastrophic situation in the sector, she needs 800 trucks per day for two to three months, to be able to provide the required resources.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) warned several days ago of what is happening in the Gaza Strip, including the destruction of residential neighborhoods, the displacement of hundreds of thousands from their homes, and the targeting of the agency’s headquarters, which shelter hundreds of thousands of displaced people, noting that all the schools that the agency uses as refugee shelter centers are known. The Israeli occupation forces have coordinates there, and are aware that it shelters hundreds of thousands of displaced people.
