The UAE representative to the United Nations, Lana Nusseibeh, praised the General Assembly resolution, which calls for a humanitarian truce to be implemented immediately between Israel and Hamas.

The majority vote on the resolution also calls for the entry of aid into the Gaza Strip and the protection of civilians.

In a press conference after the vote, Nusseibeh said: “120 votes…is a rejection of the status quo that is currently happening on the ground in Gaza. Humanitarian aid must come in; there must be humanitarian ceasefires or truces to allow for those who have been injured and wounded to seek medical assistance.”

She stressed that humanitarian aid must be delivered with a ceasefire or humanitarian truce that allows the provision of medical assistance to the injured and wounded.

The UAE voted in favour of the resolution, which the Arab Group submitted to the United Nations General Assembly regarding the war in Gaza, concerned with protecting civilians and adhering to legal and humanitarian obligations.

The resolution, which was adopted by an overwhelming majority in the General Assembly, calls for an immediate, permanent and sustainable humanitarian truce, leading to the cessation of hostilities and the immediate and unhindered provision of essential goods and services to civilians throughout Gaza.
