UN: Israel Must Immediately Allow Entry of Fuel and Other Essential Items into Gaza; Hamas Must End Actions Risking Further Destabilization (United Nations)

Statement by Humanitarian Coordinator Jamie McGoldrick:

"In the context of this rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation, I call on Israel to immediately allow the resumption of fuel into the Gaza Strip, in line with its obligations as an occupying power, to ensure that the basic needs of people are met and to prevent a collapse of basic services."

"I call on the Hamas authorities to cease and prevent the launching of incendiary balloons, rockets and other actions that risk further destabilizing the situation."
Hamas and Israel agree end to cross-border bombing in Gaza (The Guardian)

"Gaza’s Islamist rulers Hamas have announced they have reached a Qatari-mediated deal with Israel to end more than three weeks of cross-border exchanges of fire.

Direct flight from UAE to Israel 'painful to watch', says Palestinian PM (Middle East Eye)

"'It is very painful for us today when an Israeli plane lands in the Emirates, under the flight name 'Kiryat Gat' - the settlement which was built on the occupied Palestinian lands of the town of Fallujah in which Gamal Abdel Nasser was trapped - in a clear and a blatant violation of the Arab position towards the Arab-Israeli conflict," said Dr. Mohammad Shtayyeh, the Prime Minister of the State of Palestine.

"'On this occasion, we salute the position of some Arab countries against normalisation with Israel, which made [Mike] Pompeo's tour fail to achieve its desired goals despite the pressures exerted on some Arab countries," he said.

Hazem Harb: Contemporary Artist (IMEU)

"Born in 1980 to a family of eight, Harb grew up in the Al-Shojaeya neighbourhood in Gaza. His mother was a skilled seamstress and stylist whose collection of painted books on fashion, as well as her work and materials, served as an early source of inspiration."

"'My work is to reformulate the archives and place them in a context that resonates with the present time,' Harb says. 'It is in constant dialogue between the past/present, the local/global,' and always refers back to his Palestinian identity."

"Harb’s current exhibition, Contemporary Heritage, is up at the Tabari Artspace, his first solo at the gallery since 2015." Follow the link for a virtual tour.
