Operation Protective Edge
We have received feedback from our office in Gaza that by 13h00 today, in a period of less than 12 hours, Israeli warplanes launched 120 air-strikes on the Gaza strip. The attacks as part of "Operation Protective Edge" were random attacking civilian homes, streets, farms, police stations and resistance sites. Thus far 20 injuries have been recorded but the casualties are expected to multiply.
Medicines, fuel and medical equipment are the main needs. Our teams can't move around for now as the bombing is too intense. Medical supplies are on standby and our response will be relevant, appropriate and measured according to the needs. In the meantime our food parcel distribution for Ramadaan continues as the way becomes clearer and safer.
