Chief UN Humanitarian Refers to Gaza War as “Betrayal of Humanity”

According to the UN humanitarian chief, Israel’s campaign on Hamas in Gaza has turned into a “betrayal of humanity” on Saturday.

The outgoing undersecretary general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief, Martin Griffiths, called for a “collective determination that there be a reckoning for this betrayal of humanity” in a statement on the eve of the war’s six-month anniversary.

“There are more civilian casualties from this war every day,” stated Griffiths, who will step down from his position at the end of June owing to health concerns.

Every second that goes on like this plants the seeds of a future that is so completely hidden by this never-ending battle.

1,170 people, primarily civilians, were killed in an unprecedented strike by Hamas terrorists on October 7, marking the start of the war, according to Israeli authorities.

Around 250 Israeli and foreign hostages were also taken by Palestinian terrorists; of them, roughly 130 are still in Gaza, including over 30 that the IDF claims are dead.

According to the health ministry in the territory controlled by Hamas, Israel has killed at least 33,137 people—mostly women and children—during its unrelenting bombardment of the region by air, land, and sea since it declared its intention to destroy Hamas.”The unconscionable prospect of further escalation in Gaza, where no one is safe and there is nowhere safe to go,” was Griffiths’ regrettable statement.
