Israel’s ‘impunity cannot continue’: UN aid chief

Last Updated on May 28, 2024 4:22 pm

Israel has come under intense criticism after the airstrikes in the southern city of Rafah in the Gaza Strip. At least 40 people were killed in the attack on Sunday night. Most of them were civilians.

The attack took place at a refugee shelter. On Monday, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Aid and Emergency Relief, Martin Griffiths, condemned the Israeli airstrikes on the displaced camps, saying that such impunity cannot continue.

Another grim update from Gaza, wrote Martin Griffiths in a message on social media platform X. Israeli airstrikes in Rafah last night killed scores of people, including women and children burned alive.

Referring to the challenges in delivering relief to Gaza, Griffiths said, “We are still unable to receive products from Kerem Shalom at the level we need due to obstruction and active fighting.”

Griffiths called for immediate action to protect civilians and ensure their safety, saying such impunity cannot continue. Protect civilians. Let them find safety. Let them get help.
