This comes as Israel continues to crack down on Palestinians living in Israel and occupied East Jerusalem. Haaretz reports Israeli police have arrested hundreds of Palestinians since Monday morning. In other news from Gaza, the head of UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in Gaza, has expressed regret after saying the Israeli airstrikes were carried out with “sophistication” and “precision.” A number of Palestinian groups criticized Matthias Schmale, saying his remarks “completely ignored the crimes committed during the latest Israeli offensive against Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip”.
