The United Nations announced today, Wednesday, that the entry of aid into the Gaza Strip has decreased by 67%, stressing that the main reason is Israel’s closure of the Rafah border crossing with Egypt on May 7.

United Nations spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, explained during a press conference that health services and other services are closing one after another, and that displacement due to ongoing Israeli attacks also affects the distribution of resources.

Dujarric pointed out that only one hospital in Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, is partially functioning, adding that the United Nations and its partners are doing their best despite all the circumstances.

The UN spokesman indicated that the Israeli bombing is still continuing intensely on Rafah, based on information he obtained from his field colleagues.

Yesterday, Tuesday, the Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that all Rafah hospitals had been out of service, with the exception of one hospital specializing in maternity, as a result of the ongoing Israeli ground attack on the city since May 6.

The Israeli war on Gaza since October 7 has left more than 117,000 Palestinians dead and wounded, most of them children and women, and about 10,000 missing amid massive destruction and famine that claimed the lives of children and the elderly.

Israel continues the war on Gaza despite orders from the International Court of Justice to immediately stop the ground attack on the city of Rafah, and to take temporary measures to prevent acts of “genocide” and improve the catastrophic humanitarian situation in the Strip.
