Are not met even if we bring in as many trucks um with medical supplies it will never be sufficient to actually meet the health needs of the population in Gaza
On Wednesday, a truck with 23,000 litres of fuel entered Gaza through the Rafah crossing, becoming the region’s first supply of fuel since the Israel-Hamas conflict began on Oct. 7.
According to World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adrhanom Ghebreyesus, however, Israel has restricted the use of the much-needed fuel to “only transporting aid from Rafah.”
Ghebreyesus says at least “120,000 liters a day are needed to operate hospitals, generators, ambulances, desalination plants, sewage treatment plants and telecommunications.”
Triggered by an unprecedented attack on Israel by Palestinian Hamas militants, Israel began its full-scale military attack on the Gaza Strip five weeks ago and has killed tens of thousands of Palestinians since — destroying many of their resources, too, along the way.
Without the fueling requirements of health care facilities, telecommunications institutions, and other major infrastructures being met, Dr. Teresa Zakaria — Health Emergency Officer for the WHO — suggests that transports passing through the Rafah crossing with other necessary supplies “will never be sufficient to actually meet the health needs of the population in Gaza.”
