MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) said on Sunday that thousands of people had stormed its warehouses and distribution centers, grabbing wheat flour and basic survival supplies.
"Thousands of people broke into several UNRWA warehouses and distribution centres in the middle and southern areas of the Gaza Strip, taking wheat flour and other basic survival items like hygiene supplies," the agency said in a statement.
The incident indicates that civil order in Gaza is starting to crumble after three weeks of war and siege, Director of UNRWA Affairs in Gaza Thomas White said.

"People are scared, frustrated and desperate. Tensions and fear are made worse by the cuts in the phones and internet communication lines. They feel that they are on their own, cut off from their families inside Gaza and the rest of the world," White was quoted as saying in the statement.

On October 7, Palestinian group Hamas launched a surprise large-scale rocket attack against Israel from the Gaza Strip and breached the border, killing and abducting people in neighboring Israeli communities. Israel launched retaliatory strikes and ordered a complete blockade of the Gaza Strip, home to more than 2 million people, cutting off supplies of water, food, and fuel. The blockade was later eased to allow trucks with humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip. The escalation of the conflict has resulted in thousands of people killed and injured on both sides.
