THE UNITED NATIONS, August 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The restoration of the UN Middle East agency facilities, damaged by Israeli shelling in Gaza will take months, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos said on Sunday.
The UN previously said that nearly 100 facilities of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) were damaged by artillery and rocket strikes of the Israeli army.
The restoration of the damaged schools, hospitals and UNRWA facilities where people have sheltered will take months, Amos said during a visit to Tehran. She added that UN humanitarian personnel in Gaza continued to provide aid to the population, distributing food, water and household items, as well as delivering medicines and fuel to Gaza’s hospitals, damaged by shelling.
According to the UN, since July 8 when the Israeli military operation in Gaza was launched, 1,975 Palestinians, including 1,417 civilians, have been killed in the coastal enclave. The number of wounded is estimated at 10,000, including 3,000 children and 3,000 women, Amos said. According to her, as the efforts to find a political solution to the conflict are underway, she is focused on ensuing effective humanitarian aid delivery.
