UNRWA: Five More UN Workers Killed in Gaza over the last 48 hours

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

Five more United Nations employees have been killed in Gaza over the past 48 hours, according to the main UN agency in the besieged territory.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has also learned of two staff members who were killed on October 24, it said in a report posted Sunday.

The additional deaths bring the total number of UN relief agency workers killed in Gaza to 79 since Hamas’ October 7 attacks on Israel, the agency said.

Last week, UNRWA chief Philippe Lazzarini said the losses amount to the highest number of UN aid workers killed in a conflict anywhere in the world in such a short period of time.
