UNFPA calls for immediate ceasefire in Gaza

New York: The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) called for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, in light of the ongoing Israeli occupation aggression against the Strip since 7 October 2023.

The UNFPA said via the X platform: "We are tirelessly working with our partners to meet the growing needs of women and girls amid the hostilities in Gaza. However, to sustain our life-saving support, we urgently call for a ceasefire."

The UNFPA also called for "unhindered and safe access to provide essential aid to those in need in Gaza."

The Israeli occupation forces have continued their aggression against the Gaza Strip, by land, sea, and air, since 7 October 2023, resulting in the martyrdom of more than 38,193 citizens, the majority of whom are women and children, and the injury of more than 87,903 others, in an infinite toll, as thousands of victims are still under the rubble.
