GAZA SITUATION REPORT 65

08 October 8.00hrs - 15 October 8.00hrs | issue 65

HIGHLIGHTS


GENERAL

Operational environment: The current international and UN focus on rebuilding Gaza has signified some hope for people in the Gaza Strip, however, until there is more tangible evidence of change at the household level, the atmosphere will continue to be one of frustration and struggle for most. UNRWA’s operational focus remains on Collective Centre management, “back to school” activities, shelter assessments, assistance to those with damaged or uninhabitable homes and regular support to Palestine refugees in Gaza

UNRWA RESPONSE
