The Libyan ambassador to the United Nations, Taher El Sonni, said: speaking at a UN media stakeout as chairman of the Arab Group at the UN; that humanitarian aids must enter Gaza with a ceasefire in place.
"The stop of forced transfer must happen. In the same time, we are questioning why those countries who are silent, who are seeing these atrocities, over 9000 civilians killed, 3,000 of them children. Why are they silent? Why is there double standards? Why is the message different when the Ukraine conflict happened? That's a question that the world is asking." El Sonni said.
He added that there's no justification to bomb refugee camps like Jebelia twice and no justification to target hospitals under what's so-called the right to defend. He indicated that depriving more than two million Palestinians from food, water, and fuel is a war crime.
"I'm wondering, where are the voices of human rights activists, special envoys on what's happening in Gaza?" The writer said.
"And this narrative of everything started only on October 07 is false. This is seven decades of struggle. So if we don't put things into context and we don't fix the root cause, we'll remain always in this vicious cycle and more innocent lives will be lost." El Sonni added.
