The head of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, Philippe Lazzarini, addressed on Friday the deteriorating situation in Gaza, expressing deep concern over the agency's limited ability to fulfill its mandate, APA reports citing CNN.

In a letter to the president of the UN General Assembly, Lazzarini highlighted the severe challenges faced by UNRWA.

“I must inform you that UNRWA's ability to implement its General Assembly mandate in Gaza is today severely limited with immediate and dire consequences for the UN humanitarian response and the lives of civilians in Gaza,” Lazzarini said in his letter.

Lazzarini warned that the UNRWA is on the verge of collapse.
