The organization stated that food reserves have started to decline in warehouses within the besieged Palestinian territory, but the situation is even more critical in stores.

"The current food supplies of basic commodities are only sufficient for two weeks, and this is at the wholesale level,” said WFP spokesperson, Abeer Atieh.

Atieh explained that out of the five flour mills in Gaza, only one is operating due to security concerns and a lack of fuel. Consequently, bread supplies are dwindling, and people line up for hours to obtain bread.

She pointed out that only five out of 23 bakeries contracted by the World Food Program in Gaza are still operational.

Humanitarian aid convoys were stationed in El-Arish, the capital of North Sinai Governorate, and headed for the Rafah crossing into Gaza on Tuesday, as announced by relief workers.

Shipments of humanitarian aid have arrived by air from various countries and international organizations. Egypt has sent dozens of trucks, while calls from around the world for donations continue to grow.

While Washington calls on Egypt to allow Americans to leave Gaza, Egypt has responded that no one will leave without aid deliveries.
