IQNA – An official with the UN’s World Food Program (WFP) described the level of destruction in southern Gaza as shocking.

Destruction resulting from Israeli attacks on Gaza


Carl Skau, deputy executive director of the WFP, said one million displaced people in southern Gaza are “trapped without clean water or sanitation”, and “the level of destruction is shocking”.

Eight months into the Israeli war on the Palestinian enclave, vast tracts of Gaza lay in ruins amid a crippling blockade of food, clean water, and medicine.

At least 37,266 people have been killed and 85,102 wounded in the genocidal war on Gaza since October 7.

Medical sources say that 25 Palestinians were killed in Gaza on Friday, June 14. An infant was killed in a strike on Gaza City’s Tuffah neighborhood, where 30 people were also injured.

In other news, al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the resistance group Hamas, said that Israeli army air strikes have killed two Israeli captives held by the group in the Gaza Strip.
