The Gaza Strip, a small enclave home to roughly 2.3 million people, has been under continued bombardment by the Israeli military since October 7th 2023, killing more than 11.000 and injuring more than 20.000 people, triggering mass displacement of the population and causing widespread destruction of civilian property and infrastructure. The bombardment began as Israel’s retaliatory response to the surprise attack on Israel launched by the armed wing of Hamas, in which 1,200 Israelis were killed, and roughly 240 Israelis and foreign nationals taken hostage.

Since October 7 and the escalation of violence between Israel and Hamas, HI/Atlas Logistique (AL) has sent a logistics needs assessment team in Egypt and in Occupied Palestinian Territories. To support and facilitate the humanitarian aid delivery as close as possible to conflict-affected populations in Gaza Strip, Atlas Logistique is launching common storage solutions in Gaza Strip (including medical products storage with temperature control and cold chain) and Egypt.

Atlas Logistique is an operational unit of Handicap International – Humanity and Inclusion (HI), specialized in the delivery of aid, in support of organizations and the humanitarian system. Our mission is to maximize the impact of aid by optimizing supply chains and opening up humanitarian space to the most difficult-to-reach populations.

There are several opportunities for social and cultural life, and living conditions are excellent.

West Bank: the security is relatively stable in Ramallah and Bethlehem, but overall unstable in Hebron and the Northern West Bank, with regular episodes of Israeli armed incursions, settler violence, and Palestinian attacks.
