Third quarter 2022 Humanitarian Response dashboard | January – September 2022
2.1 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt). The impact of the occupation has been compounded by the war in Ukraine, slow recovery from the 2021 May and 2022 August escalations of hostilities in Gaza, escalating violence in the West Bank, and ongoing effects COVID-19 pandemic.
As of Q3 2022, the HRP is only 57% funded while rising prices and market disruptions threaten the food security of vulnerable families across oPt, particularly in the Gaza Strip.
WFP is currently facing a funding shortfall of US$ 27 million for the next six months to continue providing life-saving food assistance to vulnerable Palestinians. US$ 4 million is urgently needed to avoid suspending assistance to 180,000 people in Gaza and the West Bank in December.
Shrinking humanitarian space and attacks on healthcare workers increasingly challenge the provision of humanitarian assistance, driven by Israeli military operations, regular demolitions and evictions, increased use of live ammunition, and settler violence.
