The United Nations fears thousands more civilians killed in Gaza in ground operation

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk, issued a stark warning on Saturday, expressing concerns that a wide-scale Israeli ground operation in Gaza could result in “the additional deaths of thousands of civilians.”

Türk’s statement, released in Geneva, emphasized the potentially catastrophic consequences of a large-scale ground offensive in Gaza, given the military operations conducted thus far and the context of a 56-year-old occupation.
