‘Minimum’ fuel allowed into Gaza after UN warning of risk of famine

The United Nations was forced to halt deliveries of food and other necessities to Gaza and warned of the growing possibility of widespread famine after internet and telephone services in the besieged enclave collapsed due to a lack of fuel.

Israel’s national security adviser says the War Cabinet has agreed to allow two fuel tankers a day into the Gaza Strip – an amount he described as “very minimal.” The supplies turned out to be much smaller than the UN stated.

Friday is the second day of communication interruption. It has largely cut off Gaza’s 2.3 million people from each other and the outside world and halted the coordination of aid that humanitarian groups were already struggling to deliver due to fuel shortages.
