Gaza genocide: Indian working for United Nations killed in Rafah

An Indian national working with the United Nations was killed in Gaza on Monday after the vehicle he was travelling in was attacked in the Rafah city.

The Israeli military is believed to have carried out the attack, but it is yet to confirm whether its forces were responsible for the killing.

The worker was identified as 46-year-old Waibhav Anil Kale and he was a member of the United Nations’s Department of Safety and Security and had begun working in Gaza in April.

The attack on Monday took place as the United Nations’ vehicle that Kale was travelling in was fired at while it moved from Rafah to the European Hospital in the city of Khan Younis.

According to PTI, he was previously with the Indian Army.

The UN has confirmed that this is their first international staff casualty in Gaza since Israel’s war on Gaza began, while UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has condemned the attack and called for a full investigation.
