UN agencies warned, on Wednesday (21), the need to support victims of the conflict between Israeli troops and the Islamist movement Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 132 Palestinians died in Gaza since last Wednesday, when the bombing started in the region and in southern Israel. Among the dead are 30 children and 11 women. It is estimated that at least six Israelis lost their lives in the attacks.

The WHO has launched an appeal for $ 10 million to ensure the distribution of medical supplies for emergencies among the wounded. The agency believes that the current stocks will only be sufficient for another month.

According to the organization, at least one health unit was hit by shelling, citing reports of damage, including ambulances. We recorded a total of 1090 wounded and regular patients were evacuated to make way for those affected by the conflict.

During a visit to the Centre for Refugees in Gaza on Wednesday, the commissioner general of the UN Relief Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), Filippo Grandi, said it would send a letter to Western and Arab donors with a request for $ 12 million or $ 24 million to provide urgent assistance to victims in the region. He said the measure seeks to prevent food shortages, which would be critical at the moment.
