- The United Nations humanitarian office (OCHA) has reported that the Israeli bombardment of Gaza has leveled 1,000 homes and severely damaged another 560, rendering them uninhabitable.
- Over 12,600 homes have sustained damage due to Israeli airstrikes.
The bombardment has also caused severe shortages of water, fuel, and medical supplies. All 13 hospitals in Gaza are only partially operational due to shortages of fuel and crucial medical supplies. The reduction in water supplies has resulted in dire water shortages for over 650,000 people in the territory of 2.3 million. Sewage systems have been destroyed, sending fetid wastewater into the streets and posing a health hazard.
OCHA has warned that the humanitarian situation in Gaza is rapidly deteriorating. Thousands of people have been displaced from their homes and are in need of shelter, food, water, and medical care. The agency has called for an immediate ceasefire and for all parties to allow humanitarian aid to reach those in need.
