Biarawati Filipina di Gaza Tak Dapat Dijangkau saat Israel Tingkatkan Serangan di “Zona Aman”

MANILA: A Filipino nun who stayed at her church in Gaza is unreachable, Philippine authorities said on Friday, as they are trying to evacuate 14 nationals from the city of Rafah, where 1.5 million Palestinians are crammed in tents amid heavy Israeli bombardment.

Of the 137 Filipinos trapped in Gaza since Israel began its daily bombardment of the densely populated enclave in October, authorities have so far evacuated 122 people through the besieged territory’s Rafah, which borders Egypt.
