WHO warns water, food Available only ‘for hours’ in Gaza

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that there were only 24 hours left before a “true disaster” hit Gaza, with water, electricity and fuel supplies running out.

The UN Health agency confirmed that Israel had intensified the blockade on the enclave after the deadly attack by the Palestinian group Hamas on October 7.

If help doesn’t arrive in time, doctors must “prepare death certificates for their patients,” WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean Ahmed Al-Mandhari said late Monday.

Lack of water in Gaza under the Israel blockade is driving people to drink from contaminated sources and could spread diseases, the UN Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) explained.
