German Chancellor Olaf Scholz tells Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu there is an “urgent need” to ease the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

Scholz “underscored the urgent need to improve the humanitarian situation for residents in the Gaza Strip,” his office says in a statement after a call between the two leaders. “Humanitarian ceasefires could contribute to a significant improvement in care for the population.”
