Gaza government says famine deepening, airdrops 'ineffective'

The Gaza government's media office said famine is deepening across the Gaza Strip.

The office said that "2.4 million people suffer from severe food shortages, and famine is deepening further in Gaza and the north".

"Airdropping aid and turning a blind eye to bringing it in through the crossings is a circumvention of radical solutions to the problem," it added.

The government said they hold Israel and the international community responsible for the famine.
