UN: Gaza residents facing unprecedented levels of famine

United NationsThe Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said today that Israel andHamasThe war continues,GazaResidents of the corridor are experiencing unprecedented “near famine conditions”.

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization reported that the entire local population in Gaza is currently at severe levels of food insecurity, and about 550,000 people are facing the most severe “famine” level, Agence France-Presse reported.

“Severe food insecurity, hunger and famine have reached unprecedented levels in Gaza,” Beth Bechdol, Deputy Director-General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, said in an interview released today.

“Every day we see more and more people who are literally on the brink of famine, or moving towards it,” he said.

Bekdour said all of Gaza’s 2.2 million residents are in the top three most dangerous categories of food insecurity, from crisis level 3 to famine level 5.

The World Food Program (WFP)’s Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) divides food security into five levels ranging from security to famine.

The five levels are, respectively, Level 1 “safe” (less than 5% of the population is severely undernourished), Level 2 “stress” (5% to 10% of the population is severely undernourished), and Level 3 “crisis” (10) % of the population is severely undernourished). Level 4 “emergency” (15 to 30% of the population is severely undernourished), level 5 “famine” (more than 30% of the population is severely undernourished). Level 3 or above means there is food shortage and an urgent need for international rescue.

“Currently, about 25% of the local population of 2.2 million is at famine level,” Bekdo said.
