All aid delivery of food and fuel by the UN to the 1.5 million people in the embattled Gaza strip has been suspended.

Aid organizations are saying its too risky following a series of Israeli attacks on UN staff and its installations.

This was announced shortly after the driver of a U.N. truck was killed by tank fire as he was headed to an Israeli border crossing to pick up an aid shipment.

According to the U.N, the Israel was aware of the delivery but their army was not informed.

U.N. spokesperson, Chris Gunness, says aid shipments are being suspended until the safety of staff can be guaranteed.
