Briefing note

Gaza's cash liquidity crisis

Published 08. Jul 2024
The hostilities in Gaza have led to a severe cash shortage, intensifying the hardships faced by residents in this cash-based economy.

Limited internet access and unequal access to mobile phones hinder cashless banking, exacerbating the situation. This crisis also hampers humanitarian operations, complicating the delivery of aid.

Addressing this crisis must be an urgent priority for the international community.
