DW News published this video item, entitled “Massive damage in Gaza could take years to repair | DW News” – below is their description.
The U.N. Security Council welcomes the cease-fire between Israel and Hamas and calls for immediate humanitarian aid for Palestinian civilians, especially those in Gaza. On the third day of the truce, thousands of displaced families are returning to their homes in Gaza – or what is left of them. At least 6,000 people are estimated to have been left homeless. Egyptian mediators are in Israel and the Palestinian territories, trying to make sure hostilities do not resume. Hundreds of Hamas militants paraded through the streets of Gaza City in a show of strength on Saturday.
One of the triggers of the most recent tensions was a plan to evict some Palestinian residents from the Sheik Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem. The issue has yet to be decided by the Israeli Supreme Court.DW News YouTube Channel
