International News: United Nations rights chief renews calls to stop violence

Posted: Friday, November 10, 2023. 1:27 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk has renewed calls for a ceasefire in Gaza.

“Water is scarce and fear is pervasive in Gaza,” Türk said.

In addition, the U.N. rights chief said that a colleague in Gaza had to flee Israeli bombardments with his family.

The UN relief agency for Palestine refugees UNRWA, confirmed that more than 100 of its staff members have now been killed since the Israeli bombardment began.

“Stop the violence, guarantee the safety of humanitarian workers, provide safe access to ensure that humanitarian assistance can be delivered to all those in need, make sure people have enough to eat, clean water to drink and medical care and shelter, free the hostages, serve accountability and bring to justice in line with international humanitarian law the perpetrators of serious violations,” Turk expressed.

The U.N. rights chief also called for the 240 hostages to be brought back home and for the “indiscriminate firing of rockets into Israel” by Palestinian armed groups to cease.

Health authorities say that 4,400 children have been killed in Gaza in the past month and over 26,000 injured.
