Famine risk rising in Gaza: UN

GENEVA: The population of the Gaza Strip faces an increasing risk of famine as the Israel-Hamas war drags on, the UN’s World Food Programme warned Tuesday.
“The situation in Gaza is of course slipping every day into a much more catastrophic situation,” with “a looming threat of famine,” Abeer Etefa, the WFP’s senior Middle East spokeswoman told a press briefing.
A study conducted between November 24 and December 7 found that all 2.2 million people in the Palestinian territory were in a crisis level of food insecurity.
