Zali Steggall asks what steps govt is taking to ensure humanitarian aid reaches civilians in Gaza

6 June 2024

 

To the prime minister

Prior to the 7 October terrorist attacks, approximately 15,000 trucks a month delivered essential humanitarian aid, including food, fuel and water, to Gaza.

I understand that approximately only 2020 trucks entered Gaza last month, so only 13% of previous levels. Many Australians have grave concerns of impending levels of catastrophic food and water insecurity and a famine may soon be declared.

What steps is the government taking, within its power, to ensure essential humanitarian aid, food and water gets to Gaza?
