Saudi Arabia Welcomes Security Council Resolution to Increase Humanitarian Aid to Gaza

Saudi Arabia welcomed on Sunday the United Nations Security Council for adopting a resolution that calls for taking urgent steps to immediately allow the unimpeded delivery of humanitarian assistance to the Gaza Strip.

The Foreign Ministry hoped the move would be a step in the right direction towards reaching a ceasefire and protecting civilians in Gaza.

It reiterated the Kingdom’s call on the international community to fulfil its responsibilities and promptly put an end to the systematic violations committed by the Israeli forces against innocent civilians.

The ministry stated that these violations, which involve killings and forced displacement, violate international law and humanitarian laws.

The Security Council on Friday passed resolution 2720 urging steps to allow “safe, unhindered, and expanded humanitarian access” to Gaza and “conditions for a sustainable cessation” of fighting.
