Japan Pledges to Donate $65 Million to Gaza after Refusing a UN Ceasefire

The Japanese Government took the world by surprise after pledging to deliver $65 million in additional aid for the people in the besieged Gaza strip, following the ongoing escalating war by Israel on Occupied Palestine. 

Foreign Minister Yoko Kamikawa confirmed the pledge amidst talks with Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki in Ramallah in the West Bank, after announcing to donate $10 million to Gaza last month.

The announcement came shortly after Japan alongside France, the UK and the US rejected a UN Security Council resolution that called for a humanitarian ceasefire for Gaza.

The death toll in Gaza has now reached a grim milestone of over 9500, most of them women and children. 

The Israeli regime is also actively blocking humanitarian aid from entering the strip, frequently cutting electricity and restricting fuel while openly calling for genocide of the Gazans.
