UN says has Gaza food and water supplies for 12 days

GAZA: The UN agency for Palestine told Al Jazeera it has less than two weeks’ supply of food and water to assist the more than 180,000 people who have sought refuge in their schools in Gaza.

“We’ve got supplies for 12 days for food and water. Roads are blocked, we don’t have telephone lines, we have had networks hit by air strikes.  It is really difficult for us to know what’s happening,” Jennifer Austin, Deputy Director of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in Gaza, said.

“We are relying on our staff, who are themselves refugees, who are going out to provide a service. It is really unprecedented situation we are facing. We don’t turn anyone away,” she added.
