    Statement from ICRC’s Near & Middle East regional director following recent developments in the region

    “We are deeply concerned by the waves of escalating violence in the Middle East and strongly warn against the further regionalization of the conflict in Gaza and Israel. This region has been mired in humanitarian crisis for decades, with civilians in Yemen, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and elsewhere paying the highest price. Intensifying hostilities are likely to cause yet more suffering and to exacerbate existing humanitarian emergencies. What people in the region need and deserve above all is a respite from violence.

    We urge all parties involved to put civilian lives first and adhere to the principles of international humanitarian law. It is imperative that efforts be directed towards de-escalation and the preservation of human life and dignity.”
