Media – UN Security Council Briefing by Lynn Hastings, Deputy Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process and UN Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator for the Occupied Palestinian Territory, on the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question.

Hastings said, “The agreement on the resumption of aid deliveries through the Rafah crossing and the release of a small number of hostages over the past few days shows that through diplomacy and negotiation, humanity can prevail and we can find humanitarian solutions, even in the depths of conflict.”

She noted, “If we are to prevent any further descent into this humanitarian catastrophe, dialogue must continue – to ensure essential supplies can get into Gaza at the scale needed, to spare civilians and the infrastructure they depend on, to release hostages, and to avoid any further escalation and spillover. The world is looking to the Member States around this Council to play its part in leading the way.”
