Gaza has "less than a week" of food left now that Israel controls Rafah border crossing

•, by: Ethan Huff

According to reports, just six aid trucks have entered Gaza in the last week, this being a mere fraction of the normal amount that bring in food, water, medicine and other supplies for the roughly 1.4 million people, many of them refugees, who are hunkered down in the Palestinian territory's southernmost city.

Unless more aid trucks are able to get into Gaza somehow, the bodies of these 1.4 million souls will starve to death.

The Israeli military took "operational control" of the Rafah border crossing on May 6 in order to further isolate the people of Gaza from the outside world, which includes all of the people who support their lives but who are running out of ideas about how to help them.

The formerly closed Karem Abu Salem (Kerem Shalom) border crossing is now open instead, this being the last remaining route in and out of Gaza through which necessities are making it into the Palestinian territory. If Kerem Shalom ends up being closed back down again, then everyone in Gaza will be left to starve.

Pray for the people of Gaza

According to Juliette Touma, spokeswoman for the United Nations' (UN) Palestinian refugee agency (UNRWA), the "very minimum" number of aid trucks that should be entering Gaza every day is 500. And all of them need to be carrying some "combination of fuel, aid supplies and commercial supplies" in order to keep the people of Gaza alive.
