Didier Burnod spoke with euronews special envoy in Gaza Valérie Gauriat.
Didier Burnod: "The offensive has lasted for two weeks. Yesterday we talked about the great difficulties in Gaza's hospitals. Since one was hit by a bomb that's got worse."
At least 15 people were killed in an overnight Israeli air strike at a building in the Rimal neighbourhood of Gaza City, according to civil defence workers.
When euronews arrived at the building, emergency crews were working to recover bodies from the debris. Five of the nine floors of the building collapsed.
Despite international diplomatic efforts to reach a truce, explosions have once again lit up the sky over Gaza City as Israel continues its offensive against Hamas militants.
So far at least 630 Palestinians and 29 Israelis have been killed in the two-week long conflict.
According to the UN at least 75 percent of the Palestinian deaths have been civilians, including dozens of children.
