Gaza at ‘high risk’ of famine, conflict spread could be ‘apocalyptic’

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has warned that the Gaza Strip is at “high risk” of famine, with nearly the entire population facing acute food insecurity and 22 percent in a state of “catastrophic food insecurity.” FAO chief economist Maximo Torero emphasized that limited access to humanitarian aid and ongoing hostilities have severely impacted Gaza’s population.

UN humanitarian coordinator Martin Griffiths cautioned that the Israel-Palestine conflict’s spread to Lebanon could be “potentially apocalyptic,” highlighting southern Lebanon as a critical flashpoint. Recent escalations include cross-border fire and Israeli airstrikes in Lebanon, prompting warnings from both Israel and Hezbollah.

In solidarity with Gaza, the Islamic Resistance in Iraq and Yemen’s Houthi group launched drone attacks on targets in Israel. The situation remains highly volatile, with broader regional implications if the conflict continues to escalate.
