UN calls for ‘political process’ amid Gaza reconstruction


A UN official in Gaza on Sunday called for a “genuine political process” to avert further bloodshed after Israeli atrocities ravaged the Palestinian enclave.


As thousands of Gazans slowly tried to piece back together their lives; top UN staff visited the territory after an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire on Friday halted 11 days of bombardment.


On Sunday, in a badly-damaged district of Gaza city, volunteers swept up clouds of dust at the feet of collapsed buildings; while others shovelled debris onto the back of a donkey-drawn cart.


Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip since May 10 have killed more than 200 Palestinians; rendered thousands homeless and laid waste to buildings and key infrastructure across the blockaded territory.
