This pause must be used to ensure much greater volumes of food, fuel and other life-saving aid reach Gaza on a sustained basis. We hope it will build confidence towards future, repeated and lengthy humanitarian pauses. We have already tripled our aid commitment to Palestinians this year and will now work closely with the UN and other partners to this end. We continue to call for immediate, unimpeded, and safe humanitarian access for lifesaving aid to reach civilians. The UK will continue to work with all partners in the region to reach a long-term political solution, which delivers lasting peace and security for both Israelis and Palestinians.
