We are aware of reports that Hamas has been taking control of aid sent to Gaza from Arab countries.

We have repeatedly called publicly and privately for full and safe access for humanitarian agencies so that help can reach those in need. We urge all parties to respect their obligations, and to ensure the safe and unimpeded passage of humanitarian aid to Gaza.
