Israel eyes Gaza tunnels, snubs UN 1.8.2014 Asian Age: International
Smoke rises after an Israeli strike hit Gaza City, northern Gaza Strip, on Thursday. Israel said Thursday it would not pull troops from Gaza until they finish destroying a network of cross-border tunnels, despite sharp United Nations criticism over the Palestinian civilian death toll. Speaking at a special Cabinet meeting in Tel Aviv, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would not accept any ceasefire that did not allow troops to continue destroying tunnels used by militants to attack Israel. “Until now, we have destroyed dozens of terror tunnels and we are determined to finish this mission with or without a ceasefire,” he said at the start of the meeting. “So I will not accept any (truce) proposal that does not allow the IDF (army) to complete this work for the security of Israel’s citizens.” His remarks came after the Army confirmed mobilising another 16,000 reservists, hiking the total number called up to 86,000. Israel does not say how many troops are currently fighting inside the Gaza Strip. US ...

UN official in Gaza cries on camera 1.8.2014 deccanherald.com
A spokesman of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the main UN body in Gaza, burst into tears on camera when asked by an Arab news station to explain the scale of civilian suffering. "There are times when tears speak more eloquently than words. Mine pale into insignificance compared with Gaza's," Chris Gunness said. "UNRWA is overwhelmed in Gaza. We have reached breaking point; our staff are being killed, our shelters overflowing. Where will it end ... UNRWA now has 2,25,178 displaced in 86 shelters. But Gaza is being destroyed. So when the war is over, where will these people go?" he added. At dawn on Wednesday, Israeli forces shelled a girls school doubling as a refuge for more than 3,000 people, killing at least 15, including four children, the Gaza Health Ministry said. The UN is struggling in Gaza to withstand a flood of almost a quarter of a million refugees into shelters that have repeatedly come under Israeli fire. Out of cash, the UNRWA says it can barely handle the humanitarian ...
