Israel waging 'unnoticed war' in occupied West Bank: UN chief says

Israel is waging an "unnoticed war" in the occupied West Bank even as its military continues its offensive on Gaza, the UN Palestinian refugee agency (Unrwa) chief Philippe Lazzarini said.

“All over the West Bank, the story repeats: fear, uncertainty and anxiety engulf the communities,” Lazzarini said.

He cited the example of Israeli raids on Nour Shams refugee camp in the occupied West Bank, which he said had led to the destruction of houses, roads and basic infrastructure.
