The top superpowers of the G7—Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and the High Representative of the European Union—have come out to call for humanitarian pauses in order to deliver aid to desperate Palestinian civilians in Gaza.

According to a statement, the countries want to strike a balance between condemnation of Hamas’ attacks on Israel and a call for ‘urgent action’ to assist civilians in the trapped Palestinian enclave in need of food, water, medical care, and shelter.

As the diplomats met in central Tokyo, a United Nations agency reported that thousands of Palestinians are heading south on foot in Gaza with only what they can carry after running out of food and water in the north.

They have continued to condemn Hamas and said Israel’s has a right to self-defence from the Hamas.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said a pause is urgently needed to ease the movement of civilians and the release hostages as soon as possible.

“The United States believes key elements should include no forcible displacement of Palestinians from Gaza,” Blinken said.

He stated that Gaza should not be a platform for terrorists or other violent attacks.

According to the statement, the G7 are more united than ever in their quest for international peace, security, and prosperity for all.

The G7 meets annually to discuss issues such as global economic governance, international security, and energy policy.
