ICRC welcomes the agreement to deliver medication to the hostages and medical facilities in Gaza
With that goal in mind, the ICRC has been engaging with the parties to agree to a mechanism to deliver medicines to the hostages. The ICRC initiated the conversation in its role as a neutral intermediary. The parties negotiated the agreement, including how much medicines would be delivered and by whom, with Qatar brokering the deal. The mechanism that was agreed to does not involve the ICRC playing any part in its implementation, including the delivery of medication.
The ICRC welcomes the agreement to deliver medications to the hostages and to medical facilities for the residents of Gaza as a positive humanitarian step.
