The United Nations said that at least 52,000 people had been displaced in the Gaza Strip due to Israeli attacks on the area and the number of people sheltering in UN schools is increasing.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Jens Laerke, Geneva spokesman for the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), told Anadolu Agency during a twice-weekly UN media briefing in Geneva that the number of displaced people has surpassed 52,000 since the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

“We have an additional influx into our schools. As I mentioned, there are 47,000 as of this morning in UNWRA [United Nations Relief and Works Agency] schools. So it is climbing that number, and there are above 52,000 total IDPs [Internally Displaced Persons],” he added.
