UN warns Gaza food aid may end

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) aid agency said Tuesday that it will have to halt food distribution to 750,000 needy Gazans by Friday if Israel keeps the territory sealed.

Agency spokesman Chris Gunness said food stockpiles were running low.

"UNRWA's food distributions to 750,000 people in Gaza will end on Thursday unless we get in wheat, luncheon meat, powder milk and oil into the Gaza Strip. This is both a physical as well as a mental punishment of the population - of mothers and parents trying to feed their children - who are being forced to live hand to mouth. It is a further illustration of the barbarity of this inhuman blockade. It is also shameful and unacceptable that the largest humanitarian actor in Gaza is being forced into yet another cycle of crisis management," said Gunness.
