Inter-Agency Standing Committee calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza

# The United Nations global coordination forum, the Inter-Agency Standing Committee, is calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and for Hamas to release all hostages immediately. On October seventh last year, Hamas infiltrated southern Israel, where they killed about one-thousand-200 people and took 253 others hostage. In response, Israel launched a military campaign in Gaza, in which 29-thousand-300 people have been killed. The UN forum is calling on Israel to fulfil its legal obligation, under international humanitarian and human rights law, to provide food and medical supplies.
