In reaction to the conflict in Israel and the Gaza Strip, Mustafa Tmaizi, Oxfam Acting Country Director in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and Israel, said:
"Oxfam strongly urges all parties to immediately cease all military offensives and maintain restraint to prevent further escalation of violence that will only harm innocent civilians on both sides. This surge in military escalation underscores the persistent failure of leaders to address the prolonged occupation and Gaza blockade with no meaningful measures taken.
Oxfam is closely monitoring the humanitarian situation alongside our local partners and international organizations. We are also currently assessing the safety and well-being of civilians, Oxfam personnel and partners, especially in areas lacking adequate shelters and protection."
