An executive with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) this week called for an “immediate cessation of violence” in the Gaza Strip so that the humanitarian organization and other groups can deliver direly needed supplies to civilians in the region.
Bill O’Keefe, CRS executive vice president for mission and mobilization, told “EWTN News Nightly” host Tracy Sabol Wednesday that the agency has been “hearing from a number of places in Gaza about just how serious the conditions are for the 1.5 million displaced people” there.
O’Keefe said CRS does not have staff at Al-Shifa Hospital, where fighting has been taking place. According to Israel, Hamas maintains a base of operations in tunnels beneath the medical complex.
