The Israeli army has denied telling the UN health agency WHO to empty an aid warehouse in southern Gaza before ground operations in the area render it unusable.

“The truth is that we didn’t ask you to evacuate the warehouses and we also made it clear (and in writing) to the relevant #UN representatives,” the Defense Ministry body responsible for Palestinian civilian affairs, COGAT, says on X, formerly Twitter.
