Algeria requests UN Security Council meeting on mass graves in Gaza :: nournews

“Yes, Algeria has requested closed-door consultations on this issue,” a source at the international organization told TASS.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called on Tuesday for an independent investigation into the tragedy.

On April 7, the Israeli army withdrew the 98th Division, which had been conducting operations in Khan Yunis for four months, from southern Gaza. Much of the city is in ruins, with major damage to roads and infrastructure. More than 330 bodies have been recovered from mass graves after Israeli forces withdrew.

Israel waged a genocidal war against besieged Gaza on October 7, after the Palestinian Hamas resistance group carried out a historic operation against the occupying entity in retaliation for the regime’s increased atrocities against the Palestinian people.

Since October 7, Israeli attacks on Gaza have killed at least 34,596 Palestinians and injured 77,816.

Israel has completely laid siege to the densely populated area, cutting off fuel, electricity, food and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
