Gaza children are going without food for days in the north of Gaza as aid convoys are increasingly restricted from entering, according to a report.
Some residents are making flour from animal feed because they are starving, but even those supplies are running out, some people living in the northern section of the enclave told the BBC.
They also said that some people are digging down into the earth to access water pipes for washing and drinking.
The UN has said that the number of young children with acute malnutrition in the north has grown dramatically, and is past the 15 per cent threshold.
Over half the aid missions to the north of Gaza were refused access in January and Israeli troops are intervening more frequently in the location and method of deliveries, according to the UN’s humanitarian coordination agency, Ocha.
