RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Emergency supplies of rice and wheat will be distributed on 143 Gaza families by the Palestinian Ministry of Social Affairs and UNRWA, officials said Monday.

Packs consisting of 10 kilograms of rice and 30 kilograms of wheat will be distributed on Gazans across the Gaza Strip.

The director of the Social Security Department said that families living in the Gaza Strip will receive supplies “disregarding their living conditions, who they are or if they are refugees or non-refugees.”

However, Riyad al-Bitar added that families already receiving supplies from UNRWA, the World Food Programme, Oxfam, or coupons program would be excluded.

Al-Bitar added that families can receive the supplies by showing an ID card, a drivers license or a Palestinian passport.

A spokesman of the Ministry of Social Affairs highlighted that the goal of this campaign is to make it easier for families to receive supplies under the “exceptional” conditions in the Gaza Strip.

2,000 Israeli aid trucks came through their Erez Crossings, now it has not been shelled since the latest cease fire. I am disappointed with UNWRA, so far they can only distribute emergency supplies of rice and wheat to 143 Gaza families. Are they still busy in the bunkers and the command and control centers?

Those who will receive supplies “disregarding their living conditions, who they are or if they are refugees or non-refugees''. Does that mean that the Hamas’ military wing al-Qassam Brigades and other renegade radical Islamic Jihadist terrorist organisations, the al-Quds Brigades military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees and the al-Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades. As well stockpiled rockets, will also have also have the first supplies of aid food from UNWRA.
