Less than half of humanitarian shipments reach northern Gaza

United Nations, Mar 20 (Prensa Latina) Less than half of the aid shipments to northern Gaza reached their destination in the course of this month, warned today the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

The agency’s latest update on its operations in the Strip states that 11 of the 24 missions managed to reach the north while the rest were denied or postponed.

The facilitated missions mainly involved food distribution, nutrition and health assessments, and the delivery of supplies to hospitals.

This situation confirms how limitations in humanitarian access severely affect the timely delivery of vital assistance, particularly to hundreds of thousands of people in the north of the enclave.

At the same time, Israeli authorities granted access to three out of four relief missions to areas south of Wadi Gaza, the report added.

The statistics state that 78 of the 103 missions reached that portion located near the north, 15 of them denied and 10 postponed or withdrawn.
