“A Nightmare from Which They Cannot Wake”: UNRWA Head on Gaza’s Catastrophic Reality

HeadlineJun 25, 2024

In Gaza, Israeli attacks have killed dozens of Palestinians over the past day, including 14 people who were sheltering in U.N.-run schools in northern Gaza. Another attack in Khan Younis killed at least 10 Palestinians as they were either seeking or helping shield aid supplies. UNRWA head Philippe Lazzarini offered a stark assessment of the situation in Gaza, nine months into Israel’s slaughter.

Philippe Lazzarini: “Gaza has been decimated. For more than 2 million Gazans, it is a living hell, a nightmare from which they cannot wake, catastrophic levels of hunger across the Gaza Strip as a result of human action. Children are dying of malnutrition and dehydration, when food and clean water wait in trucks.”
