At least 102 United Nations staff members have been killed in Gaza since the war began, a UN aid agency operating in the enclave said Monday, APA reports citing CNN.

"In the last 24 hours, one UNRWA staff member was killed with her family in the north of the Gaza Strip due to strikes," bringing the death toll to more than 100, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said in a statement.

At least 27 staff members have also been injured since the start of the war, it said.

"This is the highest number of United Nations aid workers killed in a conflict in the history of the United Nations," UNRWA said.

United Nations offices around the world lowered their flags to half-staff on Monday and all UN staff held a moment of silence to mourn and honor their colleagues who lost their lives in Gaza, according to the statement.
