WFP Renews Famine Warning in Gaza, Where 70% of North Faces Catastrophic Hunger

HeadlineApr 25, 2024

In Gaza, the World Food Programme warned this week that widespread famine is approaching amid the ongoing assault and obstruction of aid.

Gian Carlo Cirri: “We estimate 30% of children below age of 2 is now acutely malnourished or wasted, and 70% of the population in the north is facing catastrophic hunger. There is reasonable evidence that all three famine thresholds — food insecurity, malnutrition, mortality — will be passed in the next six weeks.”

This comes as more horrifying details emerge about three mass graves found at the decimated Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis. Rescue workers have uncovered nearly 400 bodies, including children, with some victims appearing to have been executed or buried alive. We’ll have more on this after headlines.
