More than 100 UN staff members have been killed in the Gaza Strip within a month of Hamas' attack on Israel. Among the dead are teachers, doctors and support staff, as well as engineers and psychologists, sanitation and technical workers.

"Devastated. More than 100 UNRWA colleagues have been confirmed dead... Teachers, nurses, doctors, support staff," Lazarini listed.

According to the UN, 101 UNRWA staff members have been killed in the Gaza Strip since Hamas attacked Israel on October 7. Among them are teachers, school principals, engineers, doctors, psychologists, support staff, sanitation and maintenance workers.
