“Deliberate attempt” to stop the work of the UN in Gaza, complains its head

Its head United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) believes that a deliberate effort is being made to “strangle” its humanitarian work in Gaza and warned that it may be forced to shut down entirely due to a lack of fuel. “I truly believe there is a deliberate attempt to paralyze our operations,” the Commissioner General said Philip Lazzarini, speaking to reporters in Geneva. He even called it “outrageous” that emergency services are being forced to beg for little fuel.

UNRWA, which supports with its work more than 800,000 displaced at Gaza Strip, may stop it from working. Lazzarini said he has been begging for fuel for weeks. For the first time since the start of the war, fuel was delivered to the Gaza Strip on Wednesday. The amount given, however, 24,000 liters of diesel, it is impossible to cover the needs of the residents of the area. “Due to a lack of fuel we will not be able to send our trucks to the south of the Gaza Strip, where people are waiting for humanitarian aid deliveries,” he said.

The two main ones telecommunications companies, Paltel and Jawwal, they announced a little earlier that energy sources are exhausted them for that too all their services were interrupted. The disruption of telecommunications “may cause or accelerate the collapse of any order it still exists in the Gaza Strip,” Lazzarini said, commenting on the blackout. If this is done “we will find it difficult to operate in an environment without the minimum order,” he added.
