Truce between Israel and Hamas continues to be negotiated

From Morning Report, 7:33 am on 30 November 2023

As the truce between Israel and Hamas continues to be negotiated, more aid is finding its way into Gaza.

But the humanitarian crisis continues.

The World Health Organization has warned that many more people could die from disease if the health system is not repaired quickly.

The ongoing ceasefire has meant about 200 lorries carrying humanitarian aid have been able to get into Gaza per day, but demand is far greater than the supply.

Israel is not allowing Palestinians back into the north of the territory, but aid agencies have been able to visit.

International organisations are repeating that a resumption of fighting should be unthinkable, calling again for a permanent ceasefire.

UNICEF Spokesperson James Elder spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
