The United Nations human rights office has expressed deep concern over the steadily deteriorating human rights conditions in Gaza.

A spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights told the media briefing in Geneva that this has a grave impact on the provision of essential health, water and sanitation services and well-being of vulnerable groups, particularly those needing urgent medical care.

The spokesperson said the lack of transparency in the use of resources, and the continuing suppression of freedom of speech and assembly by the authorities raise further concerns for the protection of fundamental rights of the population in the occupied Palestinian enclave.
