The first steps to moving forward with a United Nations assessment mission to northern Gaza are expected to take place in the next few days, according to the US State Department, APA reports.

Spokesperson Matt Miller said Tuesday that security and road conditions need to first be checked to ensure that the full assessment mission can be carried out safely.

The planned assessment mission was delayed “because of a renewed outbreak in fighting in the north,” Miller said at a briefing.

“We saw Hamas fighters pop up and start launching rocket attacks into Israel, start shooting Israeli forces, that made the conditions on the ground not tenable for conducting this humanitarian mission, not safe to conduct an assessment mission,” he said.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced earlier this month that Israel had agreed to allow such a mission to move forward to “determine what needs to be done to allow displaced Palestinians to return safely to homes in the north.”
