“Sixty-one percent of the Gaza population is food insecure,” Sarah Leppert, FAO’s communications adviser for Gaza and the occupied West Bank, said.
She also deplored the “rising poverty and unemployment, now nearly 39 percent.”
The World Health Organization (WHO) has raised concerns that malnutrition is more visible, citing increased cases of stunting, wasting and underweight children and continuing high rates of anemia among children and pregnant women.
