Gaza’s unfolding humanitarian crisis

By Jordi Bou

May 2, 2024 - Gaza is suffering an unfolding humanitarian crisis, nearly seven months after Israel launched a devastating offensive in response to the Oct 7 Hamas-led attacks that killed 1,200 people in Israel.

The death toll in Gaza is nearly 34,600 Palestinians, according to local health officials.

The war has driven around 70% of Gaza’s population of 2.3 million from their homes, caused vast destruction in several towns and cities and pushed northern Gaza to the brink of famine.
