US Warns of Starvation in Gaza, Blinken to Broker Ceasefire and Aid Delivery Amid Israel-Hamas Conflict



The ongoing crisis in Gaza is reaching a critical point, with the entire population facing severe levels of acute food insecurity for the first time, leading to warnings of an imminent famine. The situation has been exacerbated by the war against Hamas, leading to restricted access to food, a lack of production within Gaza, and the destruction of infrastructure, making food distribution increasingly challenging. The United Nations, alongside various humanitarian organizations, is calling for immediate action to allow more aid deliveries into Gaza, particularly in the northern regions, to prevent widespread malnutrition and long-term health impacts, especially among children.
