Decline in ‘civil order’ in Gaza as thousands break into aid centers, taking supplies, UN warns

October 29, 2023

“This is a worrying sign that civil order is starting to break down after three weeks of war and a tight siege on Gaza. Israeli troops have advanced more than two miles into Gaza, according to a CNN analysis of video published by an Israeli media outlet. The video is one of the first glimpses into where Israeli ground forces have been and what they’ve been doing during the expanded ground invasion into Gaza. A humanitarian ceasefire could facilitate the “necessary massive scale up” in delivery of aid to people in Gaza, the UN said. The Israeli military has denied shortages of food, water or medicine in Gaza, despite a growing chorus of aid agencies releasing dire warnings about shortages.
