Footage shows desperation as crowds rush to aid deliveries.

The World Food Programme has paused food deliveries to northern Gaza, noting “complete chaos and violence due to the collapse of civil order”.

The agency says the decision was not taken lightly and crews had faced crowds, gunfire and looting.

Videos verified by the BBC show people rushing to delivery trucks and a man gathering spilled flour off the ground. One girl, in tears, says she misses bread.

The UN has been warning of looming famine in the north since December.
