UNRWA: The civilian casualties in Gaza are a real tragedy

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said, Thursday evening, that the loss of life among Palestinian civilians, including women and children, in the Gaza Strip, is the real tragedy.

In a statement, UNRWA added that it is responding to the needs of Palestine refugees in the Gaza Strip with the intensification of the conflict (the Israeli aggression against civilians in the Gaza Strip for the third day in a row).

It confirmed that it continues to respond to people’s needs by providing basic services, including food distribution, health and sanitation services, solid waste transportation and operation of water wells, in light of the closure of all UNRWA schools in Gaza.

It stated that she is currently checking the number of Palestine refugees among the martyrs and the wounded, pointing out that the occupation aggression escalated intensively during the past 24 hours.

UNRWA indicated that the current escalation exacerbates the already dire humanitarian situation for Palestine refugees in the Gaza Strip, including many women and children.
