The European Union’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell has urged EU members of the UN’s Security Council and other countries to support UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’s call for a ceasefire in Gaza.

The Security Council “must act immediately to prevent a full collapse of the humanitarian situation in Gaza”, Borrell wrote on social media.

On Wednesday, Guterres invoked the rarely-used UN Charter’s Article 99 to push the Security Council to adopt a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire.

In a follow-up post, Borrell also called on Israel to allow UN agencies and the UN’s Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Palestine, Lynn Hastings, “to provide urgent support to civilians in Gaza”.
