UN (OCHA): “If there is hell on earth, it is in Gaza”


NEW YORK (United Nations) – The spokesperson for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Jens Laerke, said that humanitarian aid cannot be delivered to the northern Gaza Strip, calling the situation in this “hell on earth” territory, due to the relentless continuation of violent bombings and Zionist attacks against the Palestinian enclave.

“If there is a hell on earth now, it is northern Gaza,” declared Jens Laerke during a press conference held at the headquarters of the United Nations Office in Geneva.

Laerke spoke of the “deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, besieged and subject to devastating attacks” carried out for 37 days by the Zionist occupying forces, while the population of this territory is deprived of water, electricity, food and medicine

The UN official stressed that the “delivery of aid on board UN trucks to the south of Gaza is done in a limited manner, due to the high density of the population and that it cannot therefore reach the inhabitants” .

For the 37th consecutive day, the Zionist army continued its barbaric aggression against Gaza on Sunday, during which it destroyed residential neighborhoods and left more than 11,200 martyrs, mostly children and women, and nearly 30,000 injured among the Palestinians, according to official Palestinian sources.
