Gaza Population In ‘Grave Peril’, Says WHO

The population of Gaza is in “grave peril” says the World Health Organisation chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, citing acute hunger and desperation throughout the war-torn Palestinian territory.

The WHO says it delivered supplies to two hospitals on Tuesday, one in the north and one in the south, with 21 out of 36 hospitals in the Gaza Strip no longer functioning at all.

The WHO chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, is also calling on the international community to take “urgent steps to alleviate what he calls the grave peril facing the population of Gaza and jeopardising the ability of humanitarian workers to help people with terrible injuries, acute hunger, and at severe risk of disease.

In a statement, the WHO said its ability to supply medicines, medical supplies, and fuel to hospitals is being increasingly constrained by the hunger and desperation of people en route to, and within, hospitals it reaches.
