Palestine’s UN Observer Calls for International Mobilization To Stop Israel’s Genocide in Gaza

Permanent Observer of the State of Palestine to the United Nations Riyad Mansour called out the UN Security Council in his second appeal for an end to Israel’s strikes on the city of Rafah in the Gaza Strip: “I write again with extreme urgency to reiterate our appeal for urgent international mobilization to stop Israel’s genocidal war against the Palestinian people,” the letter reads, reported TASS. “Three days ago, we called again for immediate international action, warning in particular of Israel’s threats to carry out an assault on Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.”

Mansour pointed out that Rafah is sheltering civilians who had fled their homes due to military activities. “Emboldened by the Council’s continued paralysis and the cover given to it by some permanent members, Israel has launched its threatened invasion of Rafah, killing more than 164 people and injuring hundreds more in the span of these two days. Among the victims are babies who were born in recent months and whose entire existence was lived in the midst of a genocide and the terror, trauma, starvation and misery inflicted by Israel on them and their families,” the Palestinian diplomat noted.
