“Our colleagues at the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights is deeply concerned about the steady deterioration in the humanitarian conditions and the protection of human rights in Gaza.
At the height of summer, with soaring temperatures, electricity provision has not risen above six hours per day since the beginning of the current crisis in April, and it has often been under four hours. The Human Rights Office warns that this has a grave impact on the provision of essential health, water and sanitation services. Power outages threaten the life and well-being of vulnerable groups, particularly those needing urgent medical care.”

“The Office says that the State of Palestine and the authorities in Gaza and Israel, are not meeting their obligations to promote and protect the rights of the residents of Gaza. It urges those authorities to uphold the human rights of the population in Gaza. And the Human Rights Office also calls on the international community to respond to the UN’s urgent appeal for humanitarian aid, to honour pledges made to support reconstruction and development of Gaza, and to work with the parties to bring a resolution to the current crisis.”
