Pakistan says failure of UN Security Council to call for a ceasefire in Gaza 'disappointed'

By Mashal Khan

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Saturday said its disappointed by the UN Security Council failure to call for a ceasefire in Gaza.

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said that Pakistan is deeply disappointed that the UN Security Council has once again failed to call for a ceasefire in Gaza, even in the face of a human tragedy of epic proportions taking place there.

"Despite the invocation of Article-99 of the UN Charter by the Secretary-General and his warnings of humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza, the Council has failed to perform its primary responsibility to maintain international peace and security. The collective punishment endured by the besieged people of Gaza is unprecedented and unacceptable," it said.

"Continuation of Israel’s campaign in occupied Palestine will prolong human suffering, with massive civilian casualties and forced displacement of millions of people. It could also trigger a wider and more dangerous conflict. A heavy responsibility rests on all who have contributed to the prolongation of uninterrupted bombing of the people of Gaza," it added.

Pakistan reiterated its call for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire to avert a humanitarian catastrophe. Israel must end its barbaric attacks and inhumane siege against Gaza. We urge the UN Security Council to act now, end this inhuman war and protect the people of Gaza from an impending genocide.
