Following the failure of the U.S.’s resolution at the UN Security Council today, ActionAid said:

It is disappointing to see the UN Security Council yet again fail to take seriously its mandate to maintain peace and promote human rights by refusing to come together and determine that an immediate, unconditional ceasefire is imperative, when we know this is desperately needed to put an end to almost six months of bloodshed in Gaza.   

“With children already dying of hunger and experts warning that famine is imminent in North and Gaza Governorates, where 70% of people are experiencing catastrophic hunger, all efforts must continue to secure an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza. It is the only way to stop the devastating death toll from climbing any higher and ensure enough life-saving aid can be safely and effectively delivered at scale. It’s time to stop playing politics with people’s lives; the people of Gaza can’t afford to wait any longer.
