International Day of the Disappeared-August 30, 2018

08/30/2018 3:56 PM | Anonymous

All over the world, thousands of people have gone missing due to conflict and disaster. The lasting impact on the loved ones of the missing is immeasurable. August 30, 2018 is International #DayoftheDisappeared, and today the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) commemorates those who are missing and those suffering in their absence.  

On the International Day of the Disappeared, the delegation of the ICRC in Israel and the Occupied Territories highlights the families of the missing Israelis and Palestinians who continue to live the nightmare of not knowing what happened to their loved ones following the 2014 conflict in Gaza.
