This week, Cyrus, the European Union, the United States, and the United Arab Emirates launched the first phase of a project to supply humanitarian supplies to Gaza via a Mediterranean maritime corridor. Japan has said it will also participate in the project.

During a recent visit to the Emirati hospital in Rafah, southern Gaza, Dominic Allen, an official from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), said the conditions in the facility’s maternity ward were deeply disturbing and that it should be improved.

Tensions in the region and diplomacy

Netanyahu’s comments on Hamas’s proposed ceasefire in Gaza, a new proposal announced by the Palestinian group Hamas this week, were dismissed as “ridiculous” by Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In order to invade Rafah, where about 1.4 million Palestinians are taking refuge, Netanyahu announced that the Israeli military has approved a plan for a ground invasion. It has been warned that Israel may not go ahead with the plan by the UN, as well as countries like Germany and the Netherlands.
