The World Food Programme took advantage of a five-hour humanitarian truce to provide emergency food assistance to thousands of people affected by the escalation in violence and to move food stocks into position around the Gaza Strip.

WFP's Country Director in the occupied Palestinian territories, Pablo Recalde, took part in an inter-agency mission to Gaza on Thursday, to assess the enclave's emergency humanitarian needs.

Reem Abaza asked Mr. Recalde about the situation on the ground.
