Red Cross describes fighting in Gaza as 'intense'

International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Director General, Robert Mardini, on Saturday expressed deep concern over the resumption of "intense" fighting in Gaza.

Speaking at the COP28 UN climate summit, Mardini highlighted the grim situation, describing Gaza as a place in "shambles and rubble," with significant destruction of critical infrastructure and civilian homes. He emphasized the challenges of delivering humanitarian aid amidst the ongoing violence, stating that Gaza was at a breaking point, with people facing shortages of food and water and hospitals operating with limited resources.

The attacks on the enclave continued a day after a week-long humanitarian pause.
