UN Rapporteur: The Security Council’s decision to cease fire in Gaza is binding and must be implemented

Geneva – Together – The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Palestine, Francesca Albanese, said that the UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza is completely binding and must be implemented.

Albanese explained, in a press statement, that there is no clear measure regarding a ceasefire in Gaza and that this should be achieved as soon as possible, stressing that the relevant UN Security Council resolutions are completely binding and must therefore be implemented.

She stressed that “there are many things that must be done” to ensure the flow of aid to Gaza, including opening all crossings, adding: “It seems to me that we have not reached this stage yet because a ceasefire has not been declared.”

Albanese pointed out that Israel, as an occupying power, has a responsibility to ensure the arrival of humanitarian aid, but it has not fulfilled these obligations.

Albanese expressed her concerns about the Israeli ground attack plan on the city of Rafah in southern Gaza, and said: ‘
The attack on Rafah will be a disaster on top of a disaster, and a disaster within a disaster.’
