80 pct of Gaza’s population displaced due to Israel’s war

The UN humanitarian coordinator for Gaza reported Tuesday that 1.9 million people, 80 percent of the population, are now displaced.

She expressed deep concern over new evacuation orders for Khan Yunis.

The UN estimates that up to 250,000 people are affected by the Israeli military’s directive for civilians to leave Al-Qarara, Bani Suhaila, and other areas near Khan Yunis, Gaza’s second-largest city.

“Over 1 million people have been displaced again, seeking shelter and safety.

Currently, 1.9 million people are displaced across Gaza,” Sigrid Kaag told the UN Security Council, highlighting new evacuation orders in Khan Yunis.

Kaag expressed concern about the plight of Palestinian civilians in Gaza, describing their suffering as immense.

She stressed that the war has created a severe humanitarian crisis and called for more aid to reach the war-torn region.

She emphasized the need for opening new crossings, especially to southern Gaza, to prevent further disaster.

Kaag urged reopening the Rafah crossing between Gaza and Egypt and called for increased international funding for relief efforts.
