Minute’s Silence at UN for Staff Killed in Gaza

A minute’s silence was observed at the United Nations in Geneva on Monday, November 13, to honor what it said were the 101 staff members of UNRWA, the agency for Palestine refugees, who have been killed in Gaza since October 7. “This is the highest number of aid workers killed in the history of our organization in such a short time,” said Tatiana Valovaya, director-general of the UN office in Geneva. UN offices around the world, including the New York headquarters, also paid tribute on Monday. The UNRWA said on Monday that one of its guesthouses in Rafah “sustained significant damage” from Israeli naval strikes. Credit: United Nations Geneva via Storyful
