The UN is alarmed by an “almost inevitable” famine in Gaza that is “imminent” in the north of the enclave.

This life is now over.

The United Nations was alarmed on Tuesday, February 27, about an “almost inevitable widespread famine” in the Gaza Strip, particularly in the north of the besieged Palestinian territory. “If nothing changes, there is a risk of famine in the north of the Gaza Strip,” warned Carl Skau, deputy executive director of the World Food Program (WFP), at the UN Security Council. “It is late February, and at least 576,000 people in Gaza – a quarter of the population – are one step away from famine. One in six children under the age of two in the north of the Gaza Strip suffers from acute malnutrition and emaciation. “The entire population of Gaza relies on woefully inadequate humanitarian assistance to survive,” added Ramesh Rajasingham of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

THE Hezbollah attacks Israeli base. Hezbollah said on Tuesday that it had fired a new volley of rockets against Israel's Meron air base for the second consecutive day in response to Israeli airstrikes the day before in eastern Lebanon. Israel asserted on Monday that it had attacked Hezbollah positions in Baalbeck for the first time since the start of the war in Gaza, killing two fighters.

The offensive on Rafah is being prepared. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated on Sunday that the Jewish state would soon launch a ground operation against Rafah, which he said would enable a “total victory” over Hamas in “a few weeks.” If a ceasefire were concluded, it would only “delay” this offensive, he stressed.
