Despite opposition to a ceasefire in Gaza, the UN human rights chief called for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza.
On Monday, the first of Scorpio, Volker Turk, the head of the United Nations human rights, said in a statement: “The first step should be an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza in order to provide humanitarian assistance to save the lives of civilians.”
Mr. Turk said in his statement that the violence does not decrease in the absence of a sympathetic option of the leaders, which is the basic desire of humanity.
Mr. Turk raises this request for a truce when the President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, said: “The truce in Gaza will take place when all the people who were taken hostage by Hamas on October 7th are released.”
The Israeli army has confirmed that Hamas gunmen arrested 222 people and brought them into Gaza on October 7th, and released two hostages through the mediation of Egypt and Qatar.
EU foreign policy chief Josip Porel has said that a ceasefire is needed for humanitarian aid to reach Gaza.
This is despite the fact that the Israeli army has announced airstrikes on Gaza today.
