Gaza31Oct5GAZA (PNIC):-The Palestinian Civil Defense Office in Gaza said on Thursday that it has been seeking the help of the International Red Cross Committee to continue the search for missing Palestinians following Monday’s air strike by the Israeli army.

A statement by the Civil Defense Office said the Red Cross has been holding contacts with Israel to enable its crews to reach the strike scene near the border fence separating Gaza and 1948 Occupied Palestine (Israel).

However, no reply was provided yet by the Israeli side over the appeal, the Red Cross told the Civil Defense in a phone call made on Wednesday evening.

Palestinian Civil Defense Spokesman, Mohamed al-Maydanah, also said on Wednesday that the civil defense crews have suspended the search for the five missing Palestinians due to the proximity of the tunnel to the border fence with Israel.

Seven resistance fighters, including a commander at the Saraya al-Quds Brigades and his deputy, along with two members of al-Qassam Brigades, were killed and 13 persons injured afternoon Monday after the Israeli occupation army struck a resistance site east of Khan Younis, south of Gaza Strip. Others are still missing.
