More than six months into the war on Gaza, the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip is every day more severe. More than 33,000 Palestinians have been killed, and over 75% of the total population has been displaced. Aid agencies agree that a famine is now imminent. Aid delivery has long been hindered by restrictions and concrete challenges on the ground, while the lives of humanitarian workers are endangered. This event delves into the crisis affecting the Gaza Strip, focusing on the humanitarian impact of the conflict, the management of aid in the Strip, and the politicization of humanitarian efforts since the outbreak of the conflict.
