What are we asking for?
- We’re calling for the blockade on Gaza to be urgently lifted as children’s lives hang in the balance.
- The Government of Israel and all parties must allow aid workers to reach children with life-saving support, as well as the unimpeded entry of essential supplies and fuel.
- Members of the UN Security Council and the rest of the international community should work with all parties to facilitate an immediate ceasefire.
It is critical to seek a just solution that addresses the underlying causes of this violence, that upholds equal rights for both Palestinian and Israeli children, and that will end the decades-long occupation as the only sustainable resolution to the conflict. This will ensure that all children in the region can live in peace.
