World Food Programme Halts Food Deliveries in Northern Gaza Amid Security Concerns

The World Food Programme (WFP) has temporarily suspended food deliveries to northern Gaza due to safety concerns for both recipients and aid workers amid the collapse of civil order. The Israeli military had previously ordered the evacuation of 1.1 million Palestinian civilians from northern Gaza, with at least 300,000 people remaining reliant on UN assistance. The WFP is negotiating to ensure safety and plans to resume operations once conditions allow for secure delivery and distribution of aid.
