United Nations: The situation in Gaza has reached a new critical threshold


New York – United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Martin Griffiths, said that the situation in Gaza has reached a “new critical threshold” and that the United Nations “will continue to provide assistance to people wherever they are.”

Mr. Griffiths indicated in a post on the “X” platform today, that the recent occupation order to evacuate and the ground attack on Rafah will lead to more deaths and displacement.

The same UN official stated that tens of thousands of people were forcibly displaced during the past few days, noting that the closure of the Rafah border crossing hinders the transfer of aid and personnel, and that his crew is still in Rafah.

He pointed out that there are more than a million people, 600,000 of whom are children trapped there, stressing that “the decisions taken today will be remembered by future generations.”

It is noteworthy that the Zionist occupation army entered the Rafah land crossing yesterday, amid heavy fire on its buildings, and occupied it completely, preventing the movement of travelers and the entry of aid into the Gaza Strip, according to what was reported by the Palestinian News Agency (Wafa).

The Rafah land crossing is considered the lifeline for the residents of the Gaza Strip and the only land port for bringing in aid and evacuating the wounded and sick.
