John Ging, the director of UNRWA operations in Gaza Strip, addressed an urgent appeal to the world to immediately step in and end the human crisis engulfing the Strip due to the IOA siege.
Ging, in a press conference late on Sunday, underlined that the blackout in Gaza reflected the extent of suffering of the Gaza inhabitants.
He drew the attention to the fact that no fuel supplies entered Gaza since Thursday, recalling that the previous supplies did not meet the needs.
UNRWA official underlined that hospitals in Gaza worked only on electricity generators and that they were now out of work because fuel is no longer available.
The Gaza inhabitants are paying dearly and the world should protect them, Ging said, adding that civilians should be protected at times of conflict according to the international law.
