United Nations Security Council call for ceasefire welcome but must be followed by action – Matt Carthy TD

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, Matt Carthy TD, has welcomed the adoption of a resolution at the United Nations Security Council that calls for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

He added that the resolution ‘must now lead to meaningful actions to deliver and support such a ceasefire’ and that the international community must be ready to sanction Israel while it continues its genocide against the Palestinian people.

Teachta Carthy said:

“For almost six months, the international community has failed humanity by its inaction in the face of the wanton death and destruction in Gaza that has already led to the killing of over 31,300 people, including more than 13,450 children.

“I welcome the adoption of the resolution today by the United Nations Security Council that calls for an immediate ceasefire. I agree with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ assertion that failure to implement it would be unforgivable.

“The adoption of this resolution must now lead to meaningful actions to deliver and support a ceasefire. The international community must be ready to introduce meaningful sanctions on Israel while it continues its genocide in Gaza people and its occupation and apartheid against the Palestinian people.

“A humanitarian catastrophe is worsening by the hour in Gaza. No effort should be spared in delivering the ceasefire demanded by the Security Council and in the delivery of the aid so desperately needed by the many victims of Israeli aggression there.”
