Ambassador Carolyn Oppong-Ntiri (Mrs) voiced concern about the actions on the ground by both Israelis and Palestinians and the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip and other parts of the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

She called for the respect of international humanitarian law and international human rights law as well as the protection of all civilians and civilian infrastructure.

The Council must do everything within its means to bring the hostilities to an end and help resume the stalled peace process, which would promote confidence-building measures and provide for a peaceful and lasting resolution of the question of Palestine based on the principles of international law and relevant UN resolutions.

Ghana remains committed to supporting a meaningful peace process towards resolving the long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflict and ensuring the fulfilment of the rights and aspirations of both Israelis and Palestinians, she said.
