Jabalia (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) – “We have got some very brave UNRWA staff members here” says Thomas White, the director of the agency’s operations in Gaza. UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, is the body specifically aimed at helping Palestinian refugees. Speaking in the Gaza Strip, White says “we’ve got six trucks of aid for the people in Jabalia”, a refugee camp north of Gaza City. Aid has been making its way to those in need during a truce agreed by Israel and Hamas, marking the first pause in the fighting since October 7, when Hamas gunmen killed 1,200 people in Israel and took 240 hostage. In Gaza, the Hamas-run health ministry says nearly 15,000 have been killed by Israel’s military response.
