MSF Holds UN Security Council to Account on Suffering in Gaza

“Meeting after meeting, resolution after resolution, this body has failed to effectively address this conflict. We have watched members of this Council deliberate and delay while civilians die. This death, destruction, and forced displacement are the result of military and political choices that blatantly disregard civilian lives. These choices could have been—and still can be—made very differently.” – Christopher Lockyear, Secretary General MSF

In a searing address to the UN Security Council yesterday, Christopher Lockyear, Secretary General of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), called for an immediate and sustained ceasefire in Gaza and the protection of medical facilities, staff, and patients.

“We demand the protections promised under humanitarian law.
We demand a ceasefire from both parties.
We demand the space to turn the illusion of aid to meaningful assistance.
What will you do to make this happen?”
