Angelina Jolie recorded an inspiring message for young people in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre, where over 8,000 Bosniaks were killed in July 1995 during the Bosnian War. Jolie, who chose the Bosnian War as the setting for her directorial debut "In the Land of Blood and Honey" released in December 2011, has also visited Bosnia as a UNHCR goodwill ambassador and funded the construction of houses for returnees in eastern Bosnia.

The Srebrenica massacre, which occurred in July 1995, involved the killing of over 7,000 Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) boys and men by Bosnian Serb forces in the town of Srebrenica, eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina. Additionally, more than 20,000 civilians were expelled from the area in a process known as ethnic cleansing. This atrocity, the worst mass murder in Europe since World War II, spurred the West to push for a ceasefire, bringing an end to three years of war in Bosnia.

U.N. Reports Massive Displacement In Gaza 

Farhan Haq, a spokesperson for U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, provided updated figures during a daily news briefing. “As of today, around 600,000 people, which is a quarter of Gaza’s population, have been displaced from Rafah since the 6th of May due to the ongoing Israeli ground operation there,” he stated.

Additionally, the U.N.’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs released a flash update on the displacement from southern Gaza. “On 14 and 15 May, the Israeli military issued two new evacuation orders affecting all or part of 19 neighborhoods in northern Gaza, bringing the total number of orders issued since 6 May in Rafah and northern Gaza to five,” the update noted.

According to U.N. figures, of the nearly 600,000 displaced since May 6, approximately 150,000 have fled Rafah in the past 48 hours. Despite warnings from the U.S. and other allies, the Israeli army continues to deploy ground troops into Rafah.

U.N. Faces Critical Shortages Of Tents And Food For Displaced Gazans

The U.N. has depleted its supplies of tents and food for nearly 2 million people in Gaza, most of whom are displaced and reliant on aid to prevent famine. U.N. officials informed the Guardian on Wednesday that their warehouses south of the river dividing northern and southern Gaza are completely empty. Resupply is unlikely as long as the main entry points remain closed following recent Israeli offensives.

“There are no tents left in humanitarian warehouses, and no food stocks remain with the World Food Programme or UNRWA south of the river. What has been distributed or is still available on the market is all that’s left, and we expect it to run out soon,” said Georgios Petropoulos, head of the Gaza sub-office of the U.N, Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. 

The Rafah crossing remains closed after being taken by Israeli troops last week, and ongoing fighting and logistical challenges have hindered large convoys from entering through Kerem Shalom, according to U.N. officials.
