Access is still restricted in many affected areas in the Gaza strip for relief workers trying to deliver living-saving support such as the evacuation of injured people and the distribution of food and water.

A humanitarian pause in the Gaza strip, largely observed on 26 July, has also allowed for utility workers to carry out basic maintenance and repairs as well as retrieve some of the dead.

Significant damages has been made to major infrastructure in the Gaza strip including water and electricity lines, sewage pump stations and storage facilities for food.

Speaking to Anzhelika Devis, Katleen Maes, Head of the humanitarian Emergency Operations Center in Gaza (OCHA), begins by describing the humanitarian situation uncovered on the ground during the brief respite.
