Thousands of Gazans remain homeless and hospitals still have a large number of intensive care patients over a week after a ceasefire ended Israel's devastating three-week offensive against Hamas militants, according to the latest UN update, which calls for immediate unhindered humanitarian access to the Strip's 1.5 million inhabitants. "At this stage, the initial response is focusing on the re-establishment of basic services to the population of Gaza, including water, health, food, cash assistance, education and psychosocial support," the UN Office the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said Jan. 26.
