The humanitarian situation in Palestine continues to be characterized by prolonged restrictions on access to natural resources, movement of goods and people, and limited production capacities. In Gaza, recurrent conflict spikes and restricted access to markets for inputs and exports have deepened the vulnerability of livelihoods causing unemployment, poverty and food insecurity rates to soar. The situation in the West Bank remains tense as restrictions on access to land and natural resources, and displacements due to demolitions erode the resilience of vulnerable families. The volatile, protracted situation calls for urgent action to address the overall food insecurity of Palestinians, enhance protection and build resilience in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
