The situation in Gaza is deteriorating by the minute as aid waits to enter through the border with Egypt. It might become even more serious as Israel is preparing for a ground assault.
The Commissioner of the UN Relief and Works Agency said Gaza is being strangled and it seems that the world right now has lost its humanity.
