International News: World Health Organization cancels 6th aid mission to Gaza over security concerns

Posted: Wednesday, January 10, 2024. 10:29 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On January 9, 2024, the World Health Organization (WHO) cancelled another planned medical aid mission to Gaza citing security concerns, the sixth such cancellation in two weeks, Reuters report.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said it was the sixth mission to Gaza cancelled because requests to visit had not been approved or assurances over security provided since its last visit, on 26 December.

“Intense bombardment, restrictions on movement, fuel shortage and interrupted communications make it impossible for WHO and our partners to reach those in need,” he said. 

“We call on Israel to approve requests by WHO and other partners to deliver humanitarian aid,” the WHO chief added.

Since Hamas unprecedented attack on October 7 and Israel’s response of a declaration of war, thousands of people have been killed and thousands more displaced.

Fighting has intensified recently despite a pledge this week to scale down the war.

The WHO noted that only 15 hospitals in Gaza remain functional, even partially.
