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

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

UNRWA spokesman Adnan Abu Hasna said in a statement on Thursday 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 that exceeds its normal capacity by about 4-9 times.

The agency indicated that before the Israeli aggression, 500 trucks were entering the Gaza Strip daily, and they could barely meet the livelihood of citizens, but since the beginning of the aggression until today, the number of trucks that have entered the Gaza Strip daily is only sufficient for only 3 days, stressing that a return to the ceiling of 500 trucks will be sufficient. As it was before, it is no longer sufficient at the present time.

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.
