More than 1,000 Palestinians have been killed during Israel’s 19-day war in Gaza,  many of them women and children.At least 4,630 people have been injured, Hasanein Myawaya, the head of Palestinian emergency services, said.“More than 80,000 Palestinians have now fled their homes because of the fighting around them … there is a sense of overcrowding … UN schools have taken in 35,000 refugees.

The president of the UN General Assembly has condemned Israel’s killings of Palestinians in its Gaza offensive as “genocide”.“The number of victims in Gaza is increasing by the day… The situation is untenable. It’s genocide,” d’Escoto said at the UN in New York.
