“The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has strongly denounced the Israeli forces for leaving a massive trail of destruction in civilian sites across the besieged Gaza Strip.
ICRC President Peter Maurer said on Tuesday that the destruction left behind by the Tel Aviv regime’s aerial and ground forces is unprecedented.
The condemnation comes as Maurer is in Gaza on a three-day mission to assess the situation on the ground following the announcement of a 72-hour truce.
The top official is expected to hold meeting with people directly affected by the conflict. In addition, he will be holding talks with senior Palestinian officials as well as the leadership and volunteers of the Palestine Red Crescent Society.
Israel’s month-long onslaught killed 1,880 people including 430 children.
The UN says the war has displaced a quarter of Gaza’s 1.8 million population.
Medics and surgeons with the ICRC say hospitals in Gaza are overwhelmed by the increasing number of casualties amid lack of medical supplies.
Meanwhile, senior military analysts say the Israeli regime used the US and European weapons to attack innocent Palestinian people in the impoverished territory.
Western governments have come under fire by human rights activists and world protesters for providing the Israeli regime with lethal weapons.”
