UN group asks for emergency funds for Gaza
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency, UNRWA, on Tuesday launched a 300 million-dollar emergency appeal for Gaza and the West Bank, dpa reported.
While the war in Gaza ended three years ago, the aftermath has had a considerable impact on men, women and children, said UNRWA Vice President Margot Ellis.
"The effects of the war still persist today and the humanitarian needs of the women, men and children of Gaza remain widespread and acute," she said.
Despite the war's end, Gaza remains under blockade, and its population is "subject to collective punishment, an act illegal under international law," she said.
