The Jordanian capital of Amman is all set to host an emergency international conference on the Gaza crisis. The conference is titled "Call for Action: Urgent Humanitarian Response for Gaza" and is being co-organized by Egypt and the United Nations.

This high-level gathering is scheduled to commence at 10:00 am Cairo Time and will bring together heads of state, senior government representatives, and key organizations to address the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip.

The main goal of the conference is to explore ways to strengthen the international community’s response to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and to outline effective measures to alleviate the suffering of the residents of the strip.

Additionally, the conference will discuss preparations for early recovery, address operational and logistical needs and necessary support, and seek commitments for a collective, coordinated response to address the humanitarian situation in Gaza.

According to the Jordanian News Agency Petra, the emergency conference is being held at the invitation of Jordanian King Abdullah II, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

Confirmed participants include Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sameh Shoukry, Jordanian Minister of Foreign Affairs Ayman Safadi, and the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Martin Griffiths, as listed on the conference's official website.

King Abdullah emphasized the importance of the conference in unifying and consolidating efforts to deliver humanitarian aid to the strip. He also stressed the need to reach an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza, protect civilians, and implement the two-state solution to achieve regional peace and security.
