White added in a post on his “X” platform page that the people of the Gaza Strip are “hungry and eager to obtain food,” emphasizing that every day in Gaza is a struggle for survival in search of food and water.
He concluded his post by stating that “there is a need for more regular supplies, which require secure and sustainable access to humanitarian aid everywhere in Gaza, including its northern areas.”
White attached a video clip showing hundreds of Palestinians flocking to the UNRWA aid convoy in the city of Gaza.
The war on Gaza has triggered a humanitarian crisis, leaving a quarter of its population starving to death.
