World Food Programme pauses deliveries to the north of Gaza

# The United Nations World Food Programme has decided to pause deliveries of life-saving food aid to northern Gaza until conditions are in place that allow for safe distributions. The organisation says it had hoped to begin a week-long delivery this past weekend, sending ten trucks each day to help stem the tide of hunger and desperation. However, crews have faced hungry crowds attempting to climb on the trucks and gunfire. The UN organisation says it hopes to resume deliveries responsibly as soon as possible.
