Palestine (IP) – A UN-affiliated entity warned about the emerging famine in the Gaza Strip and urged humanitarian aid to the war-hit strip.

Iran PressIran news: World Food Programme (WFP) announced that famine is looming in the Gaza Strip and the risk is increasing.

Issuing a statement on Tuesday WFP said: "It is highly likely that the population of Gaza, especially women and children are at high risk of famine if WFP is not able to provide continued access to food."

The international body warned of severe food shortages and noted that the food supplies sent to Gaza by trucks are insufficient to address dangerous hunger levels in the strip.

WFP reported earlier that about 2,200 Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip are in need of food. 

Al-Maydeen's reporter had earlier reported that the power was cut off in the Gaza Strip and there was a lack of food and water. 

It was on October 7 that the Palestinian Resistance carried out Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on the Israeli regime's forces in response to the regime's daily crimes against the Palestinian people during 75 years of occupation of Palestine since 1948. 

The operation inflicted an irreparable hit on the Israeli regime's intelligence and military reputation such that the US allied with France, the UK, and Germany to help the regime but they could not restore the reputation, but left nearly 15,000 Palestinian people, including women and children.
