At Least 5 People Killed, Including U.N. Staffer, as Israel Bombs UNRWA Gaza Aid Site

HeadlineMar 14, 2024

In Gaza, at least five people were killed on Wednesday when Israel bombed an UNRWA aid distribution center in Rafah — one of the U.N. agency’s last remaining aid sites in Gaza. At least one U.N. worker was among the dead. UNRWA workers decried the attack.

Shady: “This is forbidden. We are an international institution. All of this is for people. We stopped returning to our homes. We work day and night to serve refugees. It is forbidden. Look, what is this? We take all of this to the elderly and children. What is this?”

The head of UNRWA, Philippe Lazzarini, said the attack was a “blatant disregard to international humanitarian law.”
