UN agency says 29 staff killed in last two weeks
Meanwhile, the UN’s agency for Palestinian refugees, says 29 of its staff have now been killed since the war between Hamas and Israel broke out earlier this month.
The agency – known as UNRWA – described being “in shock and mourning”. It had previously reported the deaths of 17 staff members.
“Half of these colleagues were teachers,” the agency added of its latest toll.
Thousands of Gazans have sought shelter at UNRWA facilities since Israel launched retaliatory strikes on Hamas after the organisation carried out deadly attacks on Israeli military posts and kibbutzes on 7 October – killing more than 1,400 people and taking more than 200 hostages into Gaza.
The Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza says more than 4,600 have been killed there.
