Gaza population at risk of famine as it continues to face emergency levels of hunger, report finds


A high risk of famine persists in Gaza and the situation “remains catastrophic” as the war between Israel and Hamas continues, according to a report released Tuesday by the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC).

Nearly half a million are projected to face catastrophic levels of hunger, the most severe level on the IPC scale where people “experience an extreme lack of food, starvation, and exhaustion of coping capacities,” according to the report.

96% of the population of Gaza – more than 2 million people – will face crisis, emergency, or catastrophic levels of food insecurity through at least the end of September, the report projects.
Really concerning news about Gaza – they're facing serious hunger issues with a risk of famine 😔🌍. The situation there needs urgent attention and support. Hope things get better soon for those affected. 🙏
