International News: United Nations chief at Rafah crossing says aid convoy ‘the difference between life and death’

Posted: Friday, October 20, 2023. 2:26 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, United Nations humanitarians said that an agreement to unlock aid deliveries across the Gaza border was near.

U.N. chief António Guterres delivered a powerful call in front of the gates at the Rafah crossing to get lifesaving aid moving.

Guterres spoke about the 2 million people trapped without sufficient supplies now for nearly two weeks.

“We are witnessing a paradox: behind these walls we have two million people that are suffering enormously, have no water, no food, no medicine, no fuel, that is under fire, that needs everything to survive,” he said.

“We have seen so many trucks loaded with water, with food, with medicines – exactly the same thing that is needed on this side of the wall. These are a lifeline. They are the difference between life and death for so many people in Gaza,” he added.

The U.N. chief called for the aid to move on the other side of the wall and to reach the people.

“We absolutely need to have these trucks moving as quickly as possible and as many as necessary,” he said.

In addition, Guterres reiterated his appeal for a humanitarian ceasefire.

He also thanked the Government of Egypt and humanitarian partners for their efforts.
