Gaza war: Indian working with UN killed as vehicle comes under attack in Rafah | Oneindia

An Indian UN worker lost his life in Gaza after a targeted attack on a UN vehicle in Rafah, marking the first international casualty in the Israel-Hamas conflict.

The incident highlights the risks faced by humanitarian workers in conflict zones.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres condemned the attack, emphasising the need to protect humanitarian workers.

Indian UN representative Ruchira Kamboj condemned civilian casualties and emphasised adherence to international law.

The attack follows the UN's backing of Palestinian membership bid, with 143 countries, including India, voting for recognition, prompting a call for reconsideration by the Security Council after a US veto last month.
