Israel Gaza – live: UN ‘horror’ at mass grave at hospitals as US says Hamas ‘moved goalpost’ over ceasefire

The United Nations has expressed horror over reports of mass graves being discovered outside two Palestinian hospitals.

The organisation said it was corroborating Gazan officials’ reports that 283 bodies were found at Nasser hospital and 30 at Al Shifa.

“We feel the need to raise the alarm because clearly there have been multiple bodies discovered,” said Ravina Shamdasani, the spokesperson for the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

“Some of them had their hands tied, which of course indicates serious violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law, and these need to be subjected to further investigations.”

It comes as the US warned Hamas had “moved the goalpost” and changed its demands in the hostage negotiations with Israel mediated by Egypt and Qatar.

State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said the United States will continue to push for an agreement that will see hostages taken on October 7 released and a pause in fighting in Gaza.

Meanwhile, satellite photos suggest an apparent Israeli retaliatory strike targeting Iran’s central city of Isfahan hit a radar system for a Russian-made air defence battery, contradicting repeated denials by officials in Tehran of any damage in the assault.
