In an interview with Al Jazeera Arabic, UN Special Rapporteur on Food Michael Fakhri said that what the world is witnessing today is a “genocide”, adding that the more than 2.3 million people in Gaza are all facing hunger.
Fakhri, a professor at the University of Oregon School of Law in the US, also said:
- The health system in Gaza has collapsed and no one is safe from diseases in the besieged enclave.
- The UN Security Council has proven “ineffective” in ensuring international peace and security, given the situation in Gaza.
- The Human Rights Council must meet in Geneva as soon as possible to stop the killing of Palestinians.
