For more than four months, civilians in northern Israel have lived with increasing levels of violence and uncertainty.

Tens of thousands of people have had to leave their homes, and are not yet able to safely return.
We are deeply concerned about the escalating violence in this area, and the further impact this will have on civilians.
People deserve to feel safe in their communities. We urge all parties involved to prioritize the protection of civilians and adhere to international humanitarian law.
