Israel soon responsible for displaced Palestinians in Gaza: U.N.

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – As Israel warns more Gaza neighborhoods to evacuate, a top U.N. envoy told the United Nations Security Council on Thursday that Israel would be required under international law to take responsibility for helping Palestinians civilians in any further large-scale displacements.

The United Nations is struggling to cope with a flood of some 220,000 Palestinian civilians into shelters. They have come under fire during three weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas militants who dominate Gaza.
