  • World Council of Churches' reaction to Israel's genocide and crimes

Pars Today - The World Council of Churches (WCC) has called for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and unconditional humanitarian aid to the enclave.

It has been over eight months since Israeli regime's attack on Gaza, and the widespread killing of Gaza's people has continued since October 7, 2023. According to Pars Today, the people of this region have very limited access to humanitarian aid.

The World Council of Churches, based in Switzerland, emphasized in a statement on Tuesday that a ceasefire would put an end to the suffering of the people of Gaza.

The statement reads: "The war and suffering in the Gaza Strip are the result of the Israeli army's blind actions in the region and its disregard for fundamental principles of international humanitarian law and ethics."

The World Council of Churches' statement stresses the need for unconditional access to humanitarian aid for the people of Gaza, sending sufficient aid to those in need, and starting a meaningful political process for the people of the region to live in peace and dignity.

In Israel's attacks on the Gaza Strip since October 7, 2023, over 37,000 people have been martyred and around 85,000 others injured.

During this period, Israel has achieved nothing but massacre, destruction, war crimes, violation of international laws, bombing of relief institutions, and famine and hunger in Gaza.
