According to a group of 11 rights experts mandated by the United Nations, the Gaza Strip is facing a severe famine, with multiple children succumbing to malnutrition. The situation is particularly dire in the northern areas which bore the brunt of the Israeli military campaign following an attack by Hamas on southern Israel in October.

The experts highlighted the recent deaths of three children in the southern area of Khan Younis and the central area of Deir Al-Balah due to starvation, despite receiving medical treatment. They pointed out that the famine, initially concentrated in northern Gaza, has now spread to central and southern regions of the enclave. Israel's diplomatic mission in Geneva refuted the claims made by the experts, stating that they have been increasing coordination and aid delivery in response to the crisis.

The dire situation in Gaza was further emphasized by a Palestinian mother, Ghaneyma Joma, who expressed her fear that her son could die of starvation due to the war, restricted aid access, and contaminated water. With over 495,000 people - more than a fifth of the population - facing severe food insecurity, the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) warned last month that Gaza remains at high risk of famine. This assessment was made based on a set of technical criteria to determine the existence of a formal famine.
