Thousands of people stormed a humanitarian aid warehouse in the Gaza Strip

Thousands of people broke into several warehouses and distribution centers of the United Nations Relief Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in the Gaza Strip and stole wheat flour and other essential items such as hygiene products. This is stated on the website UNRWA.

At one of the warehouses in Deir el-Balah, UNRWA stores cargo from humanitarian convoys arriving from Egypt.

“This is a worrying sign that civil order is beginning to break down after three weeks of war. People are scared, frustrated and desperate. Tension and fear are increasing due to the cessation of telephone and Internet communications. People feel they are on their own, cut off from their families in Gaza and from the rest of the world,” said Thomas White, UNRWA's director of Gaza affairs.

Massive population movements from the north of the Gaza Strip to the south have placed enormous pressure on these communities, further straining crumbling public services. In some families, up to 50 relatives found shelter in one house.

“Supplies in the market are running low and the humanitarian aid arriving in the Gaza Strip by truck from Egypt is insufficient. The needs of the population are enormous, even for basic survival, and the assistance we receive is meager and inconsistent,” White added.

To date, just over 80 trucks carrying humanitarian aid have arrived in Gaza this week. On Saturday, October 28, there was not a single convoy due to communication failures. UNRWA, the main organization responsible for receiving and storing aid in the Gaza Strip, was unable to contact various parties to coordinate the passage of the convoy.

“The current convoy system is designed to fail. Very few trucks, slow processes, stringent checks, supplies that do not meet the requirements of UNRWA and other humanitarian organizations, and, most of all, the continued ban on fuel supplies all contribute to the failure of the system. We call for a regular and steady flow of humanitarian supplies into the Gaza Strip to meet needs, especially as tensions and discontent rise,” White concluded.

Meanwhile, UNRWA staff in Gaza reported that internet services and communications had been restored. They will re-assess the situation with a view to resuming convoy operations and distributing aid.
