Algeria requests a closed consultation session on mass graves in the Gaza Strip next Tuesday


Algiers— Algeria requested on Saturday that a closed consultation session be held in the UN Security Council next Tuesday evening regarding mass graves in the Gaza Strip, which has witnessed continuous Zionist aggression for more than six months.

Palestinian media sources reported last week that rescue and ambulance crews found in the courtyards of the Al-Shifa and Nasser Medical Complex in the Gaza Strip, mass graves containing the bodies of Palestinian martyrs, left behind by the Zionist occupation forces after they left those sites.

In this context, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, expressed his deep concern about the reports of the discovery of these mass graves and called for the need to allow independent international investigators to access these sites.

He stressed that “it is necessary that independent international investigators, with expertise in forensic science, be allowed immediate access to the sites of these mass graves, to determine the exact circumstances in which hundreds of Palestinians lost their lives and were buried or reburied.”

It is noteworthy that more than 392 bodies of Palestinian martyrs were recovered from a mass grave in the Nasser Medical Complex, over the course of five days, after the Zionist occupation army withdrew from the city of Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip.

Since October 7 2023, the Zionist occupation has continued its devastating aggression against the Gaza Strip, leaving more than 34,000 martyrs, more than 77,000 injured, and an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe, causing the displacement of more than 85 percent of the Strip’s population, which is equivalent to 1.9 million people.
