The UAE condemned the ground operations carried out by Israel in the occupied Gaza Strip, expressing its deep concern over the Israeli military escalation and the worsening humanitarian crisis, which threatens to cause further loss of civilian lives.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed the necessity of an immediate ceasefire to prevent bloodshed, and not to target civilians and civilian institutions, stressing the importance of civilians enjoying full protection under international humanitarian law and international treaties that guarantee their protection and human rights and the necessity of not being the target of conflict.

The Ministry stressed the importance of the United Nations General Assembly’s resolution on Friday, which calls for a “humanitarian truce” and a cessation of hostilities in Gaza, as an important step to stop escalation, calm down, protect civilians, and preserve their lives.

The Ministry stressed that the immediate priority is to end the military escalation operations, protect civilians, ensure the opening of humanitarian corridors, and allow the delivery of aid to the Gaza Strip in a safe, urgent, sustainable and unhindered manner.
