Gazans facing nutrition insecurity despite Israel allowing adequate food aid – report

Predicted famine in Gaza would likely be caused by hijacking of aid inside Gaza, and not lack of nutrition in Israeli aid, finds research

Civilians in Gaza are at risk of food insecurity due to the ongoing Israel-Hamas War, even though Israel has been allowing adequate amounts of food to enter Gaza as humanitarian aid, according to a recent academic working paper.

This was the conclusion reached by a group of researchers from institutions across Israel, including Tel Aviv University, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, University of Haifa, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Sheba Medical Center, Shaare Zedek Medical Center, and the Health Ministry.

The non-peer-reviewed working paper, titled “Nutritional Assessment of Food Aid Delivered to Gaza by land and air drops, during the 2024 War,” was a nutritional assessment of food aid in Gaza, analyzing the quantity of aid and its “compliance with population needs.”
