UN Not Rushing to Correct Gaza Casualty Tally


United Nations (UN) representative Matias Bank on Saturday said his organization is not hurrying to address the numerous analyses disproving the Palestinian Arab tally of casualties in Gaza. The figures have been used as a focal point for worldwide hatred against Israel.

"Because we have to deal with multiple casualties in a short time, we focused on the first tally of the total number," Bank said, reports Yedioth Aharonoth. "We have not yet dealt with a detailed analysis of the data." Bank insisted, however, that the UN is "taking measures" to distinguish between terrorist and civilian casualties.
