Moreover, the tragic death of 195 Palestinians - including 14 students from UNRWA schools and the long-lasting physical and psychological injuries of 29,000 people during the year-long demonstrations known as the Great March of Return - come after three devastating conflicts in Gaza since 2009, which resulted in at least 3790 deaths and more than 17,000 injuries combined.

In Gaza, where unemployment stands at 54 percent and is much higher for young people, people do not have the purchasing power to fill in the gaps, McGoldrick said. He said "the next escalation is going to be probably the last one" before the sides descend into a full-fledged war.

On the statistics of Palestinian refugees, the report said that based on United Nations Relief and Work Agency records, "the total number of Palestinian refugees was 6.02 million, 28.4 percent of whom live in 58 camps". No date has been set yet for the payment of Hamas government employees' salaries.

"Unless UNRWA secures at least an additional $60m by June, our ability to continue providing food to more than one million Palestine refugees in Gaza, including some 620,000 abject poor - those who can not cover their basic food needs and who have to survive on $1.6 per day - and almost 390,000 absolute poor - those who survive on about $3.5 per day - will be severely challenged".
