A number of international aid agencies have launched or renewed their calls for funding in the past few days:

·         OCHA oPt’s Consolidated Appeal has been uprated from $462m to $529m for emergency and ongoing support

·         PAMA, the Palestinian Monetary Authority, calls for $62.9m to pay civil salaries and supplier invoices

·         OCHA, UNRWA, WHO and WFP note the following as the most urgent needs: protection for civilians and aid workers, access (sustained re-opening of borders), electricity/fuel, wheat grain for bread, and cash.
