The ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza has resulted in significant humanitarian issues that require immediate attention. In an effort to address these concerns, the president of the Red Cross recently traveled to Qatar to meet with Ismaïl Haniyeh, the head of the Hamas political bureau.
During this visit, the Red Cross discussed humanitarian issues related to the conflict with Haniyeh and sought permission to visit hostages in Gaza. The organization is also actively working to improve respect for international humanitarian law and ensure that all parties involved in the conflict are held accountable for their actions.
The Red Cross’s efforts are part of a broader effort to bring all parties together in direct discussions in order to find a solution to the ongoing conflict. With hopes for an agreement on the horizon, the organization remains committed to providing aid and support to those affected by this crisis.
