“Despite the ocean of needs, at least half of all humanitarian aid missions are denied access, impeded, or cancelled due to operational or security reasons. On top of all this, since the attack on the Rafah border crossing one month ago, the flow of critical humanitarian assistance to the people of Gaza – which was already woefully inadequate – has plummeted by two-thirds.”

4. SOUNDBITE (English) António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations:
“The horror must stop. It is high time for a ceasefire along with the unconditional release of hostages. I welcome the peace initiative recently outlined by President Biden and urge all parties to seize this opportunity and come to an agreement. And I call on all parties to respect their obligations under international humanitarian law. This includes facilitating the delivery of humanitarian aid both into and inside Gaza, as they have committed. All available routes into Gaza must be operational.”

6. SOUNDBITE (English) António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations:
“I also call for the world to stand united to safeguard UNRWA in the face of outrageous and relentless attacks. UNRWA’s role will remain critical not only during the conflict, but afterwards. Over a million deeply traumatized children in Gaza need psychosocial support and the safety and hope their schools used to provide.”

“Ultimately, the solution to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza is political. The only way forward is through a political solution that opens a path to sustained peace, based on two states, Palestine and Israel, living side by side in peace and security, on the basis of the pre- 1967 lines and the relevant United Nations resolutions, previous agreements and international law, with Jerusalem as capital of both states.”

Storyline

At a humanitarian conference on Gaza in Jordan’s capital Amman, Secretary-General António Guterres today (11 Jun) called for urgent humanitarian relief for Gaza, and said, “the horror must stop.”

Guterres highlighted the dire conditions in Gaza, where 1.7 million people are displaced, hospitals are destroyed, and there is a severe lack of medical supplies, clean water, and food. He emphasized the need for unimpeded humanitarian access and the importance of safety for humanitarian workers.

The Secretary-General said, “despite the ocean of needs, at least half of all humanitarian aid missions are denied access, impeded, or cancelled due to operational or security reasons. On top of all this, since the attack on the Rafah border crossing one month ago, the flow of critical humanitarian assistance to the people of Gaza – which was already woefully inadequate – has plummeted by two-thirds.”

He praised the efforts of Jordan and Egypt in providing aid and said it was “high time for a ceasefire along with the unconditional release of hostages.”

Guterres welcomed the peace initiative recently outlined by United States President Joseph Biden and urged all parties “to seize this opportunity and come to an agreement.”

He called on all parties “to respect their obligations under international humanitarian law,” and stressed that “all available routes into Gaza must be operational.”

The Secretary-General said the solution to Gaza's humanitarian crisis is political, advocating for a two-state solution with Palestine and Israel coexisting peacefully based on pre-1967 lines.

He said, “ultimately, the solution to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza is political. The only way forward is through a political solution that opens a path to sustained peace, based on two states, Palestine and Israel, living side by side in peace and security, on the basis of the pre- 1967 lines and the relevant United Nations resolutions, previous agreements and international law, with Jerusalem as capital of both states.”

The “Call for Action: Urgent Humanitarian Response for Gaza” conference is being held at the King Hussein bin Talal Convention Centre at the Dead Sea and aims to find ways to strengthen the international community’s response to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
