Israeli Strikes Claim Lives of 210 Palestinians in Gaza; UN Warns of Famine Risk and Rising Violence by Settlers

Health officials in Gaza have reported that 210 Palestinians were killed on Thursday due to Israeli strikes. The death toll from the ongoing war, initiatedby the Israeli regime on October 7 after an operation by Gaza's resistance groups, has now reached at least 21,320, with the majority being women and children.

Amidst the conflict, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) has issued a warning, stating that 40 percent of Gaza's population is at risk of famine. This dire situation arises from Israel's restrictions on the entry of much-needed aid trucks into the region.

Sunghay emphasized that the absence of accountability and impunity has further contributed to the surge in violence.

These remarks were made by Sunghay in response to a recent report released by the UN, which urged Israel to halt unlawful killings and settler violence in the occupied West Bank. The report, issued on Thursday, was prepared by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and highlighted the deteriorating human rights situation in the West Bank, including East al-Quds, since October 7, coinciding with the start of the Israeli military's bombing campaign in Gaza.
