34 organizations call for a ceasefire and sustained solution towards peace

Military actions by all parties must stop. Since 2009, history has shown that military operations have failed to bring peace and security for people in Gaza and in Israel.

Sadly, these ceasefires have not lasted and we have had to revert back to life-saving relief and emergency programs, aiding innocent people to cope with the trauma, and rebuilding Gaza time and time again.

More than 560,000 people have been displaced due to fighting in Anbar province in Iraq since late December 2013. The conflict in the province has evolved in the shadows of the conflict in neighbouring Syria, and the acute needs of the many displaced are far from being met.
