    United Nations,At least 2, 262 Palestinians have been killed this year in Israeli attacks and repressive actions in occupied territories in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, said Prensa Latina News Agency quoting a UN report released on Thursday (06).

    According to the latest report of the Office of Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, until October 27 the number of deaths is several times those reported in the same period last year.

    At least 2,194 people were killed during the 50 days of bombings and land incursions launched by Israel in July and August against the Gaza Strip, where 11,100 people were wounded.

    The number of wounded is also way too higher than those registered last year (11,570 and 482 respectively).

    Besides the aggression against Gaza, the Tel Aviv forces launch raids, crush demonstrations and fire weapons at human beings near their perimeter fences, checkpoints and waters with limited access for fishermen.

    In remarks to journalists yesterday, Palestinian Ambassador to the UN, Riyad Mansour, denounced that the Israeli occupation is the root of the suffering of the Arab people.

    He put forward Jordan-supported initiatives promoted by Palestine in the UN Security Council aimed at paving the way to a solution of two states, one Palestinian and the other Israeli, coexisting in peace, as demanded by the international community.(KH)
