Calm prevails in Gaza Strip as the ceasefire between Israel and the Hamas came into effect on 21st May after the 11-day conflict, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
People went to their routine life throughout Gaza that is controlled by Hamas.
Now it’s possible for people to pass through some of the main roads in Gaza, and the authorities are fixing damaged electrical lines, water as well as wastewater networks.
It is critical that Israel and Hamas work to maintain the ceasefire.
Unrestricted humanitarian access is critical to ensure an effective response in Gaza. Humanitarian personnel must have freedom of movement so that they can do their work without any restrictions.
Protection and respect must be given to humanitarian personnel and objects used for humanitarian relief operations.
A flash appeal for Gaza will be launched today Tuesday 25th of May.
At least 248 Palestinians were killed during the 11 days of conflict, which includes 66 children, 39 women as well as 17 elderly people, and 1,900 Palestinians who were injured in the bloodshed.
On the Israeli side, 12 people died, including 2 children, and 300 others who got injured.
