Ted Chaiban, UNICEF's Deputy Executive Director for Humanitarian Affairs and Supplies, stated that the water and food shortages, along with overcrowding, are extremely concerning given the risk of waterborne diseases such as cholera.

The organization delivered approximately 20 trucks through the Rafah crossing, carrying emergency medical supplies, water bottles, hygiene items, and other emergency supplies.

Chaiban mentioned that UNICEF is trying to increase the number of trucks transporting aid to Gaza daily, emphasizing that "the United Nations has said that a hundred trucks are needed daily for sustaining humanitarian work and efforts."

He added that UNICEF will continue to support children in Gaza and work diligently to establish humanitarian pathways for urgent aid.
