In a statement, Argentina’s Foreign Ministry explained that it supported an independent, transparent and in-depth investigation into all complaints of violations of international human rights and international humanitarian law, in line with what was previously expressed by High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet.

Argentinean Ambassador Federico Villegas said that his country backed the ceasefire on May 20 and called on all stakeholders to respect it. The suffering caused by these hostilities is huge.

Likewise, Argentina regretted the deaths of at least 269 Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem, including 70 children and 12 Israeli deaths (including two children), as well as thousands of injured.

‘Material damage, fueling a long-standing humanitarian crisis in Gaza, is overwhelming, particularly the destruction of essential civilian, health and educational infrastructure.

In this regard, it is critical that all parties continue to ease up a speedy and unimpeded access to the Gaza Strip of personnel and humanitarian aid,’ says the statement.
