The EU delegation visited the al-Shafa hospital in the Gaza Strip to see first-hand the deteriorating humanitarian situation following the recent military escalation with Israel.

We call for a swift, impartial and thorough investigation of each and every civilian death which occurred two weeks ago. Those responsible for the killing of civilians have to be brought to justice,” Mr Kühn von Burgsdorff said.

“All this will not serve anything unless a political reason for peace can be achieved. All this will not end the suffering of two million Gazans and many more people in the region unless Israel, the occupied power, ends the blockade and closure of Gaza,” he added.

“And that is the reason why it is so important that the Palestinian political factions unite forces and create the conditions for a unified democratic elected and credible Palestinian government running both Gaza and the West Bank,” the official concluded.

“Together with the EU, we are proud that we can support Palestinian refugees. Congratulations to the brave UNRWA team for their amazing work,” Representative Office of Poland to the Palestinian National Authority wrote on social media.
