According to the Palestinian enclave, 583 people have been killed and 3,600 injured in Gaza over the past two weeks.
The Israeli army’s casualties on the sixth day from the beginning of the ground phase of the operation in Gaza have reached 27 killed and 123 wounded.
OCHA press secretary Jens Laerke told a briefing that the Israeli military operation has made more than 100 thousand people leave homes, nearly 500 homes have been destroyed by Israeli army strikes. More than 15 thousand people are in need of non-food aid - mattresses, blankets and kitchenware. “According to an assessment by aid workers on ground, at least 107,000 children need psycho-social support for the trauma they are experiencing such as death, injury or loss of their homes,” Laerke said.
The extremely high population density, estimated at 4,500 people per square kilometre, leaves literally no safe place for peaceful civilians, Laerke stressed.
