UN claims ‘not possible’ to create safe zones in Gaza

The United Nations claims it is impossible to create safe zones for civilians to flee to inside the Gaza Strip, amid Israel’s military campaign against the Hamas terror group.

“The so-called safe zones… are not scientific, they are not rational, they are not possible, and I think the authorities are aware of this,” James Elder, spokesman for the UN children’s agency UNICEF, tells reporters in Geneva via video-link from Cairo.

Elder doesn’t suggest alternative ways for Israel to fight Hamas. The Palestinian terror group carried out the massacres of October 7 and has vowed to repeat similar onslaughts time and time again, given the chance, until it achieves its stated goal of destroying Israel.
