UN's Palestine agency 'on verge of collapse'

United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini said on Monday that the agency's operations in the Gaza Strip are "on the verge of collapse" after eight days of Israel's blockade, in which "not one drop of water, not one grain of wheat, not a liter of fuel" were allowed to enter the Palestinian territory.

Lazzarini said that the UNRWA no longer has the capacity to deal with incoming Palestinians looking for shelter. "Gaza is being strangled and it seems that the world right now has lost its humanity," he said, calling the situation an "unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe."
