UN says 88 staffers killed in Gaza, highest toll ever for body

The UN says that 88 staff members from its Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA have been reported killed since the start of hostilities on October 7.

The figure represents “the highest number of United Nations fatalities ever recorded in a single conflict,” according to a joint statement from the heads of all major UN agencies.

The statement expresses outrage at the civilian death toll in Gaza and calls for an “immediate humanitarian ceasefire,” while also demanding that Hamas release the hostages it kidnapped from Israel.

“It’s been 30 days. Enough is enough. This must stop now,” the statement reads.
