Is Israel obstructing aid from reaching Gaza? | The Israeli war on Gaza
The United Nations warns that the Palestinians are on the brink of famine.
The United Nations has warned that Gaza is on the brink of famine, while Israel has been accused of preventing humanitarian aid from reaching Palestinians in the besieged Strip.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), the main UN agency operating in Gaza, has warned that it may have to halt all operations unless donor countries that suspended their funding resume their contributions.
This comes just weeks after the International Court of Justice ordered Israel to allow “much-needed essential services and humanitarian aid” into the Strip.
What can be done to force Israel to comply with the order?
