Responding to last night’s UN Security Council resolution calling for humanitarian pauses and corridors in Gaza, Oxfam’s Head of Policy & Advocacy, Katy Chakraborrty said:
“As thousands of people are killed and injured, hospitals are bombarded and fuel supplies for aid run dry, it is a bitter disappointment that UN Security Council members are still unable to vote for a ceasefire. Calling for extended humanitarian pauses and corridors is progress for the Council but not nearly enough while the violence and siege continue.
“The UK and other Security Council members are betraying their responsibility to end conflict, as outlined in the UN Charter. Their lack of courage is preventing the Council from taking stronger action to bring an end to the immense death, injury and destruction being inflicted upon Gaza.
“The world is watching the Council closely and demanding that they lead in the push to end this brutal war. We continue to urge an immediate ceasefire, armed groups to release their hostages, and Israel to fully restore humanitarian aid and basic services that are urgently needed across the Gaza Strip.”
