Displaced Palestinians start to leave Gaza UN shelters

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip displaced by the recent conflict who have sought refuge at over 90 UN sites across the Palestinian enclave, are begining to leave the shelters

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency reports that of over 270,000 people, some 80,000 have left to return to their homes, but that some come back if said homes are destroyed or uninhabitable
