Five weeks of intense conflict caused widespread damage and casualties in Gaza. The ICRC is working with the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) and the Magen David Adom Society (MDA) to bring assistance and relief to those in need of medical care, to people who were displaced and to those without access to water and electricity.
