Between the 8th and the 28th of July, Israeli military strikes have killed at least 795 civilians in Gaza, including 229 children, 118 women, and 47 elderly.  

Another 6,233 Palestinians have been injured and over 215,000 have been internally displaced. Schools, hospitals, water infrastructure, and homes have been completely destroyed. Shelters are full, sewage is flooding Gaza’s streets, children are traumatized, and families are in desperate need of food, water, and a safe place to sleep. Hospitals, medics, and ambulances have come under fire, and health facilities and emergency rooms are in crisis over the lack of fuel and medical supplies.

In Israel, indiscriminate rocket fire from Gaza continues to endanger the lives of Israeli civilians, killing 2 Israelis and 1 foreign national, and injuring dozens more.

The violence must stop once and for all. Palestinians and Israelis deserve security and a just, durable peace.

All parties must work to address the root causes and reach a ceasefire that lasts. The blockade on Gaza must be lifted. We cannot return to the status quo. The crossings to Gaza must be open, in accordance with international humanitarian law, so that aid and recovery efforts can start and so that people in Gaza can realize their rights and live a dignified life.

This campaign is organized by INGOs, who are also members of the Association of International Development Agencies (AIDA) and other regional coordination networks, organizations of faith, and UN agencies. Among us are humanitarian, development, and rights based agencies. We share a simple message: the violence must stop, international humanitarian law must be respected, civilians on both sides must be protected, and the urgent needs of Palestinians in Gaza must be addressed. Your support for this Thunderclap campaign will help this message be heard around the world on July 28, 2014.
