GAZA – The Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said on Wednesday that all agency operations are now on the verge of collapse. He stated on X formerly known as Twitter, "By the end of the day, around 70 percent of Gaza's population will not be able to access clean water."اضافة اعلان

According to Al-Mamlaka Tv, He added that obtaining fuel for trucks alone will no longer save people's lives, and waiting any longer will lead to loss of life.

The Director of UNRWA Affairs in Gaza, Thomas White, mentioned that the agency received about 23,000 liters of fuel, which is only 9 percent of its daily needs to continue life-saving activities in the sector.

White stated that the Israeli occupation authorities restricted the use of fuel, limiting it only to the transportation of aid from Rafah, so it is not used for hospitals or providing water.

He added that the depletion of fuel led to the cessation of all three sewage pumps in Rafah and the desalination station in Khan Yunis, which provides water to hundreds of thousands of people.

He said that all wells in Rafah, which are the only source of water in the city, have stopped pumping water due to the depletion of fuel. He added that the Al-Amal Hospital, affiliated with the Palestinian Red Crescent, has stopped all its services except for emergencies due to the lack of fuel for ambulances.
