John Ging, the director of UNRWA operations in the Gaza Strip, has addressed an appeal to the world community to intervene and demand the passage of humanitarian assistance via Israeli-controlled crossings into the Gaza Strip.

He addressed the appeal via Al-Jazeera TV network, and warned that UNRWA"s stores, which provide 60% of the daily needs of the Gaza population, were out of stock completely.

The international official said that more than a million and a half Palestinians in the Strip, half of them children, are threatened with a disaster unless aid is expedited.

In the same context, John Holmes, the assistant UN secretary general for humanitarian affairs, has urged Israel to end the "unacceptable" closure of all Gaza commercial crossings.

Karin Abu Zaid, the UNRWA commissioner, said in Amman on Friday that malnutrition was spreading in Gaza due to the insufficient intake of food.

She said that the inhabitants are not only under occupation but also under siege.
