UN – Security Council meeting on the situation in Rafah (28 May 2024)


The Security Council will hold an emergency meeting today on the situation in Rafah.

In light of the seriousness of the situation, France considers it more necessary than ever for the Security Council to adopt a new resolution.

President Macron voiced our outrage at the Israeli strikes that resulted in the death of many displaced persons in Rafah. These operations must stop, in keeping with the order issued by the International Court of Justice.

The Security Council must also allow the UN to play an active role in the Gaza Strip in order to meet the immediate needs of the population and enable Palestinians to govern a territory that must be an integral part of their state.
