Blocked Gaza aid trucks a ‘moral outrage’ says UN chief

News Correspondent

The UN secretary general Antonio Guterres has called the queue of aid-trucks waiting to be allowed into Gaza where people face starvation, ‘a moral outrage’.

He was visiting the border crossing between Egypt and Gaza, not far from Rafah, where almost half of Gaza’s population have been displaced and where Israel is threatening to launch a major military operation.
