Colombia's President Accuses Israel Of Not Obeying UN's Cease-Fire Resolution In Gaza

15.04.2024 11:42

‘The vast majority of humanity desires peace,’ Gustavo Petro says.

Colombian President Gustavo Petro has accused Israel of failing to comply with the UN Security Council's cease-fire resolution in Gaza.

Quoting footage of Israel's recent attack on a refugee camp in Gaza on his X account on Sunday, Petro said: "It has started again. Following the strong reaction to yesterday's (Saturday's) attacks, the killing of children and the violation of the UNSC ceasefire resolution continue. The vast majority of humanity desires peace."

On March 25, the UN Security Council passed a resolution, demanding an immediate cease-fire, the immediate and unconditional release of hostages and the urgent need to expand the flow of aid into Gaza.

Israel has waged a deadly military offensive on the Gaza Strip since an Oct. 7, 2023 cross-border attack by the Palestinian group Hamas in which nearly 1,200 people were killed. More than 33,700 Palestinians, mostly women and children, have since been killed in Gaza, and nearly 76,400 others injured amid mass destruction and shortages of necessities.

The Israeli war has pushed 85% of Gaza's population into internal displacement amid acute shortages of food, clean water, and medicine, while 60% of the enclave's infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed, according to the UN.

Israel stands accused of genocide at the International Court of Justice. An interim ruling in January ordered Tel Aviv to stop genocidal acts and take measures to guarantee that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians in Gaza.

Late on Saturday, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) launched a barrage of drones and missiles at Israel in response to the April 1 attack on the Iranian Consulate in Damascus.

The attack, which killed seven Iranian military officials, including a senior IRGC commander, drew sharp reactions from the Iranian government officials, who vowed a "decisive response." -
