According to Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, May 25th, the latest data released by the   United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs on the 24th show thatDonkeykongplayFrom the 7th to 23rd of this month, only 906 trucks of humanitarian aid were allowed to enter the Palestinian Gaza Strip. Before the latest round of Israeli-Palestinian conflict broke out, an average of about 500 trucks of supplies were transported into the Gaza Strip every day from Rafah and Kerem Shalom, the southern ports of the Gaza Strip.

More than a million people in the Gaza Strip face "catastrophic hunger". The already serious humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip has worsened since the Israeli military blocked the Gaza side of the Rafah crossing earlier this month. According to a report by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs on the 24th, in the past half a month, trucks transporting aid have been unable to pass through the Rafah crossing, 143 trucks have entered the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom crossing, 62 trucks have passed through the Erez crossing in the northern Gaza Strip, 604 trucks have passed through the Erez west crossing and 97 trucks have passed through the United States-built temporary wharf on the Mediterranean coast in the central Gaza Strip.

The wharf built in the United States opened on the 17th of this month. Un Secretary-General spokesman Stephane Diarik said on the 24th that the operation of the terminal "got off to a bad start" and the United Nations reiterated its hope that a large amount of aid could be brought into the Gaza Strip by land passage. The United Nations has said many times before that land access is the fastest way to provide assistance to the Gaza Strip.

Reuters quoted a United Nations document as saying that as of the 16th of this month, the number of trucks of the United Nations and international aid organizations waiting to enter the Gaza Strip had exceeded 2000, including 1574 trucks carrying food.

Mahmoud Hussein, a truck driver stranded near the Rafah port, said that the supplies in his car had been loaded for a month, and the food gradually spoiled in the hot weather and had to be thrown away, and some were sold cheaply. He told Reuters that foods such as apples, bananas and cheese were spoiled and onions began to grow worms.

Khalid Zayed, head of the northern Sinai province of the Egyptian Red Crescent Society, said that the amount of aid waiting to be transported into the Gaza Strip in this area is very large, some of which have been stranded for more than two months, and "hope that the border (crossings) will be reopened as soon as possible."

Egyptian President Abdul-Fatah al-Sisi spoke on the phone with US President Joseph Biden on the 24th and the two sides agreed to temporarily deliver humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom crossing between Israel and the Gaza Strip until a legal mechanism is reached to reopen the Rafah crossing from the Palestinian side.

The United Nations International Court of Justice today issued "interim measures" in the Hague, the Netherlands, demanding that Israel immediately stop its military operations in Rafah. The International Court of Justice also demanded that Israel continue to open the Rafah crossing to the Gaza Strip to ensure the unimpeded flow of humanitarian assistance. In addition Israel must allow United Nations investigators to enter the Gaza Strip to investigate allegations of genocide and to retain relevant evidence.

However, according to Agence France-Presse, Israel continued to attack targets in the Gaza Strip, including Rafah, on the 25th. As of the 25th, since the outbreak of the current round of Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Israeli military operations in the Gaza Strip have caused more than 3. 3 percent.Donkeykongplay580,000 Palestinians were killed and more than 80,000 injured.
