Algeria requests UNSC session on mass graves in Gaza

TEHRAN, May 04 (MNA) – Algeria has requested a closed-door session of the UN Security Council on mass burials in the Gaza Strip on May 7.

"Yes, Algeria has requested closed-door consultations on this matter," a source at the international organization told TASS.

On Tuesday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for an independent investigation into the tragedy.

On April 7, the Israeli military withdrew the 98th Division, which had been conducting operations in Khan Yunis for four months, from southern Gaza. A larger part of the city is in ruins, with major damage done to roads and infrastructure. More than 330 bodies have been recovered from mass graves after Israeli troops pulled out.

Israel waged a genocidal war on the besieged Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas Resistance group carried out a historic operation against the occupying entity in retaliation for the regime’s intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

At least 34,596 Palestinians have been killed and 77,816 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7.

Israel has imposed a complete siege on the densely populated territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
