Gazans Grappling with Hunger

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Gaza strip is gripped by a humanitarian crisis as an Israeli ground incursion has deteriorated an already grave situation.



There were only two bakeries open in the entire Gaza Strip on Monday and hundreds of people could be seen queuing in front of the bakeries, Ashraf Shannon, press tv correspondent in Gaza reported.

Hospitals were also running out of fuel required for the operation of generators that provide power supply to health facilities.

Health officials have been pleading to people to help medical centers by donating any fuel they have stored in their houses.
