‘This is genocide’ – 26 days after the start of the Israel-Hamas war, the Israel Defense Forces confirmed that a top Hamas commander, Ibrahim Biari, was killed in an Israeli airstrike on Gaza’s Jabaliya refugee camp yesterday (Tuesday). In this case, ethnic cleansing is happening in Gaza and the UN has decided to prevent it. The Director of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has resigned from his position saying that he has failed.
Hamas terrorists launched a sudden attack on Israel on the 7th of last month. They also took many hostages. Both sides have been attacking each other, causing heavy casualties on both sides. This war is causing high casualties and humanitarian crisis. Thus the UN urged to stop the war in Gaza on humanitarian grounds. The water quota was passed in the General Assembly. However, Israel has made it clear that it is not giving up the war. 8,525 people have died in Gaza so far in this war. Similarly, 21,543 people were injured. So far 1,405 people have died on the Israeli side. 5,431 people were injured.
