The United Nations said on Thursday it has suspended its aid distribution in the Gaza Strip because it has run out of fuel in the besieged Palestinian territory.

"We have just stopped the distribution of all food aid to 650,000 Palestinian refugees in the Gaza Strip because of the lack of fuel in our storage in Gaza," said Adnan Abu Hasna, a spokesman for the UN Relief and Works Agency office (UNRWA) in Gaza.
