Linda Greenfield, US Ambassador to UN

As Israel prepares to escalate its military campaign on the southern Gaza city of Rafah, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield told NPR that Israel has an obligation to keep civilians safe, and that under current conditions, a planned military operation there "cannot proceed."

The flow of humanitarian assistance continues to lag far behind the needs of the nearly 1.5 million Palestinians who have taken shelter in Rafah.

Meanwhile, the primary agency delivering aid on the ground, UNRWA, continues to be embroiled in scandal.

TVNL Comment:  No evidence has emerged that anyone in UNRWA was connected to Hamas.  Still, the money has been withdrawn, and tens of thousands of Palestinians will suffer.
