Noon Briefing by Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights: -UNRWA -Gaza -Yemen -Sudan -Mali -Central African Republic -Security Council / Haiti/UNOWAS -Security Council/Colombia -Hurricane Beryl -Guatemala -Ukraine -International Day -Today’s Guests UNRWA This morning, the Secretary-General spoke at the UNRWA pledging conference here at Headquarters. His message was clear, that there is no alternative to UNRWA – which is the backbone of humanitarian operations in Gaza. He called for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza and an immediate and unconditional release of all hostages. Mr. Guterres noted that 195 UNRWA staff members have been killed, and that this is the highest staff death toll in UN history. Despite these and other obstacles, the women and men of UNRWA have bravely continued their work in whatever way they can. For his part, Philippe Lazzarini, the Commissioner-General for UNRWA, sounded the alarm that the Agency’s ability to operate beyond August depends on Member States disbursing planned funding and making new contributions to the core budget. As a reminder, for the occupied Palestinian territory emergency appeal – driven primarily by the war in Gaza – UNRWA is appealing for $1.2 billion to cover critical humanitarian needs until the end of the year. This appeal, and the emergency appeal for Syria, Lebanon and Jordan are less than 20 percent funded. Mr. Lazzarini will be talking to reporters after the pledging conference is over - around 5:30 p.m. New York time. GAZA The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says it took part in a mission to three sites in Gaza city today to assess the needs of people displaced in the wake of Israel’s latest evacuation orders. That mission was led by the Deputy Humanitarian Coordinator for the Occupied Palestinian Territory, Scott Anderson – with UNRWA, UNICEF, the UN Mine Action Service, the UN Department of Safety and Security, and the NGO ACTED also taking part. The team said those displaced urgently need food, water, health care and protection. The assessment team heard from women about the specific challenges they face, including lack of privacy and access to hygiene products, as well as difficulties feeding their infants. They also witnessed how the lack of fuel is undermining aid organizations’ efforts to provide critical services to displaced families. There has been a power outage in Gaza since October – the grid has not been functioning, therefore as you can imagine hospitals, bakeries, and water treatment plants and hygiene facilities, all are operating with generators that require fuel to be shipped in. OCHA reports that active hostilities, damaged roads, access restrictions and a lack of public order and safety continue to prevent aid organizations from obtaining adequate supplies of fuel. Movement along the main humanitarian cargo route between the Kerem Shalom – or Karem Abu Salem - crossing and central Gaza remains extremely difficult. As a result, only a quarter of the fuel supply needed to sustain humanitarian operations this month has been accessible in Gaza as of Wednesday.

Play Video: 2024 Pledging Conference for UNRWA (UN Relief & Works Agency for Palestine Refugees) - UN Chief


Remarks by António Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General, at the UNRWA (The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees) Pledging Conference 2024. "Excellencies, Ladies and gentlemen, Every year we meet to help bridge the gap between what is pledged to UNRWA and what is needed. This year is different. Yes, we face a profound funding gap. But Palestinians are seeing widening gaps across the board. Gaps in respect for international humanitarian law. Gaps in recognition of universal human rights and dignity for all. And, for Palestinians in Gaza, not just a gap – but death, destruction and a total breakdown in law and order. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse in Gaza -- somehow, appallingly, civilians are being pushed into ever deeper circles of hell. Recent days have brought yet more evacuation orders by Israeli authorities, yet more civilian suffering, and yet more bloodshed. Palestinians in Gaza keep being forced to move like human pinballs across a landscape of destruction and death. The extreme level of fighting and devastation is incomprehensible and inexcusable – and the level of chaos is affecting every Palestinian in Gaza and all those desperately trying to get aid to them. Nowhere is safe. Everywhere is a potential killing zone. It is high time for the parties to show the political courage and political will to finally reach a deal. Excellencies, Nothing justifies the horrific attacks by Hamas on October 7th. And nothing justifies the collective punishment of the Palestinian people. Yet Palestinians – including, of course, Palestine Refugees - are enduring the deadliest period since the agency’s creation. As we are all painfully aware, the horror has not spared UNRWA colleagues. 195 UNRWA staff members have been killed, the highest staff death toll in UN history. Many of them were killed together with their families and loved ones. UNRWA is also being targeted in other ways. Staff have been the subject of increasingly violent protests and virulent misinformation and disinformation campaigns. Some have been detained by Israeli security forces, and subsequently reported mistreatment and even torture. In the occupied West Bank, the presence and movements of UNRWA personnel have been severely restricted by Israeli authorities. Yet, despite these and other obstacles, in impossible conditions, and in the midst of their own grief, the women and men of UNRWA have bravely continued their work in whatever way they can. They are the backbone of humanitarian operations in Gaza. Can you imagine what it must be like to be in this situation? Can you imagine how our colleagues wake up day after day in a living nightmare and still deliver for Palestinians in desperate need? Because I cannot. They are doctors, nurses, counsellors, engineers, drivers and so many others, all demonstrating incredible courage and solidarity. And they are continuing to deliver UNRWA’s mandate in desperate circumstances in Gaza – while UNRWA also strives to deliver in an increasingly challenging situation in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and in Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria – championing human development and human rights. Excellencies, Hopelessness is the greatest ally of instability. And the work of UNRWA is one of the greatest factors providing hope and stability across a troubled region. Without the necessary support and financing to UNRWA, Palestine Refugees will lose a critical lifeline and the last ray of hope for a better future. To those of you who have already pledged support, I thank you. My appeal to everyone is this: Protect UNRWA, protect UNRWA staff, and protect UNRWA’s mandate -- including through funding. Let me be clear: there is no alternative to UNRWA. We are working on all fronts to implement the recommendations of the Catherine Colonna Report, by strengthening UNRWA’s work and risk management mechanisms. Now is also the time to work on all fronts to support UNRWA’s critical mission. And now is the time to bring an end to this terrible war, starting with an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza and an immediate and unconditional release of all hostages. Ultimately, only a political solution can bring an end to this conflict – one that realizes a vision of two States – Israel and Palestine – living side by side in peace and security, with Jerusalem as the capital of both states. I urge you to act – and act now. Act to instill hope in a place where it is in short supply. Act to uphold the mandate of this General Assembly to sustain UNRWA. Act in solidarity with Palestine Refugees and all the Palestinian people. Thank you".

Dustborn is a comic-book inspired videogame that takes place in a dystopian USA run by an authoritarian force known as Justice. Characters are at the heart of the game, and its main cast has drawn a fair amount of attention.

A defiant President Biden has hit the campaign trail in the swing state of Michigan as he continues to try to save his bid for re-election and take on Donald Trump in November. It came after another serious blow to his campaign, when he made two more blunders during a press conference at the NATO summit in Washington.   Pressure has been building for Mr Biden to step aside as Democratic candidate for November's election since a stumbling performance in a TV debate last month.   He insists he is fit to run and that the decision rests with voters rather than party leaders in Washington.

The news conference was his first unscripted appearance after a disastrous debate with his rival Donald Trump, leading to calls from several Democratic politicians and donors for him to drop out of the race for president. Speaking at the conference, Biden dismissed the concerns about his campaign that were posed again and again by a room full of reporters, and promised that he was fighting not for his legacy, but to finish the job he started when he took office in 2021.
