“Famine could happen” south of Gaza amid Israel-Hamas war, Cindy McCain says



Cindy McCain, the executive director of the World Food Programme, expressed concern about the potential for famine in southern Gaza amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. She emphasized the need to stop the fighting in order to provide aid at a larger scale. Israel has denied reports of famine in Gaza and disputed claims of weaponizing hunger in the conflict. Despite challenges in accessing certain areas, McCain stated that more aid has been transported into northern Gaza. President Biden has acknowledged concerns about Israeli actions in Gaza, including the recent raid in Nuseirat camp. The World Food Programme has temporarily paused operations in a certain area due to safety concerns after their warehouses were struck.
