Humanitarian Aid must be delivered to Gaza safely.

Torstein Dahle from FFC Norway said, "After the genocide and massacre that has been ongoing in the region for the past six months, humanitarian aid needs to be delivered to Gaza. As a civilian movement, we appreciate for the actions taken by various governments, especially the Turkish government. All states, including Türkiye, should deliver aid to the region safely in accordance with the decision of the International Criminal Court and ensure a ceasefire in the region."
