Red Cross Leaves Gaza
Amid chaos between different factions fighting amongst themselves, the International Red Cross has closed operations in Gaza. The decision came in the wake of the kidnapping of three UN workers by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah group.
The Geneva-based organization's field work includes patrols near conflict areas adjacent to Jewish settlements and attendance at public events.
About 25 foreigners work for the Red Cross throughout the Gaza Strip, and many more Palestinians. The kidnapping on Monday was the result of a dispute between different branches of the Palestinian security forces in Gaza.Ynet
