UN: Gaza health ministry death toll records credible

NEW YORK(Palestine Foundation Information Center)The UN affirmed that the death toll given by the health ministry in Gaza had proved to be “credible” in previous conflicts after Washington raised doubts about figures from the current conflict.

“In the past, during the five or six cycles of conflict in the Gaza Strip, these figures were considered credible, and no one ever really challenged them,” UNRWA chief Philippe Lazzarini told reporters in Occupied Jerusalem on Friday.

Lazzarini said 57 UNRWA staff had been killed since the conflict began, explaining how the agency’s toll reflected the broader casualty rate in Gaza.

He suggested the ratio of UNRWA staff killed to the total number of agency workers was in line with the ratio of Gazans killed to the territory’s overall population, as provided by the health ministry.
