Israeli use of live fire in Gaza Strip creates unprecedented crisis: Red Cross

International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) says Israeli troops’ unrestricted use of live ammunition against unarmed Palestinian protesters in the besieged Gaza Strip has left the enclave’s health workers struggling to cope with an unprecedented crisis.

More than 130 Palestinians, including 14 children, have so far been killed by Israeli troops since the Great March of Return rallies commenced in the blockaded sliver on March 30. Some 13,300 Palestinians also sustained wounds, of them 300 are currently in a critical condition.

Robert Mardini, the regional director for the Middle East at the ICRC, further said at a press conference on Monday that the “vast majority” of more than 13,000 hospitalized demonstrators had suffered severe injuries, including multiple gunshot wounds.

“This is I think a crisis of unprecedented magnitude in the Gaza Strip,” Mardini said, adding that he was in talks with the Israeli military in a bid to minimize civilian harm.

As a result of the talks, the Palestinian Red Cross has been able to dispatch aid workers in the vicinity of the fence, separating the Gaza Strip from the Israeli-held territories, to evacuate the wounded to safety.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, you mean So now, the IDF will allow aid workers to evacuate the wounded to safety, the same kinds of activities which got Gazan First Responder Razan al-Najjar assassinated?!?
