The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (Unrwa) stated on Sunday that it is in "shock and mourning" after it was confirmed that 29 of its staff in Gaza have been killed since the start of the war on 7 October. 

"Half of these colleagues were Unrwa teachers," it said on social media platform X, adding that "as an agency, we are devastated. We are grieving with each other and with the families."
