UN: Israel Restricts Delivered Fuel for Aid Transportation

Earlier today, on November 15th, the first fuel truck entered Gaza through Egypt's Rafah Crossing, marking the first such entry since October 7th. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) reported that Israel restricts the use of fuel in Gaza exclusively to aid transportation, which is deemed insufficient.

"This is the equivalent of half a truck! Not nearly enough. Much more is required. Fuel is being wielded as a weapon of war; this must cease. It accounts for only 9% of our daily need to sustain lifesaving activities," UNRWA director Thomas White stated on X, formerly known as Twitter.

The delivered fuel today amounts to 23,000 litres, and its distribution follows a 'collapse' in Gaza's healthcare system, as reported by the World Health Organization. Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) stormed Gaza’s biggest hospital, Al Shifa, today. The hospital has been inoperative due to the lack of resources, namely fuel.

The hospital's surroundings have been under continuous targeting in the past few days, with claims by the IOF asserting that it serves as a base for the militant organization Hamas. Approximately 650 patients and 5,000 to 7,000 Palestinians are strapped at Al Shifa Hospital amidst the escalating genocide and mass displacement across the besieged city.
