    The head of the UN aid agency for Palestinian refugees in Gaza warns that it cannot guarantee food distribution beyond the end of June.

    The agency is blaming major funding cuts by the United States for this situation.

    There are growing concerns about the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Gaza and its potential to prompt conflict with Israel.
