The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, affirmed that "Gaza is in complete blackout and isolation while heavy shelling continues."

He took to Twitter to say that the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has
warned about the desperate situation of Gaza people without electricity, food and water.

"Far too many civilians, including children, have been killed. This is against International Humanitarian Law," he added.

He called for "a pause of hostilities is urgently needed to enable humanitarian access."

"We condemn all attacks against civilians, including continuing indiscriminate rocket attacks against Israel, and we ask the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages," he concluded.
