GAZA:  The UN’s humanitarian office has said that 40 percent of Gaza’s population or over 900,000 people, have been forcibly internally displaced in the last two weeks amid Israel’s military operations in the Palestinian territory.

The UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, said in a statement via social media that every time families are being displaced. It added, the people in Gaza are forced to leave everything behind looking for safety and but as there is no safe place in the strip.

The UN humanitarian office issued the data as the International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor has said that he is seeking arrest warrants for Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his Defence Minister Yoav Gallant and around three leaders of Hamas group.

Reacting over the development, US President Joe Biden said that the ICC prosecutor’s request is “outrageous”, reiterating his support for his close ally Israel, and some US legislators have threatened to move against the world court.

On the other hand, brutalities against the people of Palestine are continuously reporting as Israeli army air attacks on Jabalia and Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza have killed more than 18 Palestinians in recent hours.

Gaza Health Ministry said that more than 35,562 people mostly women and children have been killed since October 7. It added that more than 79,652 people have been wounded in Israeli brutal attacks on Gaza. The death toll in Israel from Hamas’s attack is 1,139, with dozens still held captive.
