UN rapporteur warns of severe humanitarian situation in Gaza

Ramallah, Apr 30 (Prensa Latina) United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, Francesca Albanese, warned on Tuesday that the situation in the Gaza Strip is worse than previous international assessments.

Following Israel’s arbitrary refusal to allow me to visit Gaza and the West Bank, I traveled across the region to meet with Palestinians and other people who could help me better understand and assess developments on the ground, the official wrote on her X account.

“Based on the information I received, I concluded that the situation in the coastal enclave is worse than previously assessed,” she said.

Albanese denounced that extreme violence continues to spill over into the rest of the occupied territories and affirmed that no Palestinian is safe under Israel’s unrestricted control.

The UN rapporteur released on X her latest report on the situation in those territories, which she described as marked by “an unstoppable spiral of violence.
