German Foreign Minister Annalena Bärbock, during a visit to Israel , said that the Israeli army needs to reduce the intensity of hostilities in the Gaza Strip and expand its ability to deliver aid there. This was reported by the DPA agency, TASS reports .
Burbock said that little humanitarian aid is reaching the Gaza Strip. She called the opening of the Rafah and Kerem Shalom checkpoints an important step, noting that the way they operate at the moment “turns them into a bottleneck.” This cannot continue, says the head of the German Foreign Ministry.
She called for other ways to bring humanitarian aid to the enclave and also expressed alarm at the rise in violence emanating from radical settlers in the West Bank.
In her opinion, resolving the conflict between Israel and Palestine on the basis of creating two states is the only possibility and now “the moment has come to take this path.”
