India Strongly Denounces Israel-Hamas Conflict: Advocating for Peace at UNGA

Published on

In a powerful statement at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Wednesday, India unequivocally condemned the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, labeling it as an “alarming humanitarian crisis.” Ruchira Kamboj, India’s permanent representative to the UN, emphasized the necessity of a peaceful resolution through “dialogue and diplomacy.”

The conflict, ignited by a terror attack by Hamas in Israel on October 7, has claimed numerous lives and sparked a significant humanitarian crisis in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. Israel’s response, a comprehensive military operation, has further escalated tensions, resulting in a substantial loss of civilian lives, particularly impacting women and children.

India, expressing deep concern, has been actively involved in efforts to stabilize the situation in Gaza. Kamboj urged the seamless delivery of humanitarian aid, emphasizing the importance of Security Council Resolution 2720 in enhancing assistance.

Highlighting India’s commitment, Kamboj disclosed that the country has already contributed 70 tons of humanitarian aid to Gaza, including essential medical supplies. Additionally, India has donated $5 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees, reinforcing its support for crucial programs and services benefiting Palestinian refugees.

It is noteworthy that India, in a diplomatic shift, voted in favor of a UNGA resolution last month, calling for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in the Middle East. This move marked a departure from India’s previous abstention on a similar resolution in October.

The Israel-Hamas war has taken a toll on both sides, with over 23,200 Palestinians losing their lives, and many more suffering injuries and displacement. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has underscored the urgency of defeating Hamas, calling for a unified effort to ensure the Palestinian terrorist group is held accountable.
