Volker Turk casts doubt on Israeli moves to protect Gaza civilians

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Turk said on Friday, that Nowhere in Gaza is safe, casting doubt on Israeli arrangements to protect civilians as its military ferociously goes after Hamas.
Mr Turk said Israel also has an obligation to protect civilians in the occupied West Bank, where dozens of people have been killed in mounting violence over the past five weeks.
“At the moment nowhere in Gaza is safe. Bombardment is being reported in all parts of the strip,” Mr Turk told reporters in Jordan, the second stop in a regional trip that started with Egypt.
He said Israel’s demands for civilians to relocate to areas in southern Gaza designated as safe by its military were “very alarming”.
