“To maintain international peace and security when there is a war, the first thing that they should do - ceasefire, stop the war and deal with that situation. And because they want some, who have veto power, want Israel to continue with this crime, and to leave it completely to Israel to decide when they will stop. Then therefore the Security Council is unable to act collectively. Nevertheless we will continue to knocking on the door of the Security Council.”

“There is no justification to bomb refugee camps, like Jabalia twice. There is no justification to target hospitals, under what so called the right to defend. Therefore, depriving more than two million Palestinians from food, water and fuel is a war crime. It's not questionable, because it's killing everyone.”

“Dehumanizing Palestinians is not acceptable. We are all humans and all lives matter. And I'm wondering, where are the voices of human rights activists, Special Envoys on what's happening? Where are the human rights and when it comes to women and children in conflict? We hear that all around. Where is it today? And why we are not hearing those voices anymore? We heard messages or voices on humanitarian pauses. We're calling for a ceasefire. It's not a movie to be played, to stop when we want and leave people die. A ceasefire must be called and must be called now.”
