International report: Famine risk is high across Gaza

An international report has warned of a continued high risk of famine across the Gaza Strip, as war and restrictions on humanitarian access continue.

Some 96 per cent of Gaza’s population (2.1 million people) face high levels of acute food insecurity, the report said, expecting this situation to continue until September 2024.

According to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC), the entire Gaza Strip is classified as being in a state of emergency, which is the fourth stage of classification that precedes famine (phase five).

More than 495,000 people (22% of the population) face catastrophic levels of acute food insecurity in phase five, in which households face severe food shortages, starvation and resilience, the report said.
