Thousands of Gaza residents broke into warehouses and distribution centers of the United Nations Palestinian Refugee Agency (UNRWA) grabbing flour and "basic survival items," the organization said on Sunday. "This is a worrying sign that civil order is starting to break down after three weeks of war and a tight siege on Gaza," UNRWA said in a statement.

One of the warehouses, located in Deir al-Balah, is where UNRWA stores supplies from the humanitarian convoys crossing into Gaza from Egypt. Aid supplies to Gaza have been choked since Israel began bombarding the Palestinian enclave in response to a deadly attack by its ruling terrorist group Hamas on October 7.

Not sure I understand, does the aid get stored first then distributed or something else.

UNRWA: Thousands loot humanitarian aid warehouses
The UNRWA claims that warehouses holding humanitarian aid were emptied, I'm called for a more steady flow of supplies to Gaza.
Israel National News

The UNRWA reports that yesterday, thousands of people broke into the organization's warehouses in southern and central regions of the Gaza Strip. Basic supplies such as flour and toiletries were looted, including humanitarian aid shipments that have crossed into Gaza since the beginning of the war.

“This is a worrying sign that civil order is starting to break down after three weeks of war and a tight siege on Gaza. People are scared, frustrated and desperate. Tensions and fear are made worse by the cuts in the phones and internet communication lines. They feel that they are on their own, cut off from their families inside Gaza and the rest of the world,” said Thomas White, Director of UNRWA Affairs in the Gaza Strip.
