EU leaders to call for ‘humanitarian corridors and pauses’ to get aid into Gaza

In the final draft of the document set for approval at the Brussels summit on Thursday, European Union leaders will make a request for the creation of “humanitarian pathways and intervals” to facilitate the swift delivery of essential aid to Gaza.
“The European Council expresses its gravest concern for the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Gaza and calls for continued, rapid, safe and unhindered humanitarian access and aid to reach those in need through all necessary measures including humanitarian corridors and pauses,” the text says.
“The European Union will work closely with partners in the region to protect civilians, provide assistance and facilitate access to food, water, medical care, fuel and shelter, ensuring that such assistance is not abused by terrorist organizations.”
