Meanwhile, Hamas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu exchanged threats over Gaza. Israeli military has intensified raids.  On the other hand, Hamas has warned that no captives would leave Gaza alive unless demands met.

The World Health Organization (WHO) head said it would be all but impossible to recover the “catastrophic” health situation in the Gaza Strip even as the board approved an emergency WHO motion by consensus to ensure more medical access to the enclave.

Earlier, the US veto blocked a UN resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in the Palestinian territory during a special meeting.

According to the UN some 1.87 million Palestinians, over 80 percent of Gaza’s population, have left their homes.
