Sweden, EU states meeting with Israel on improving aid access in Gaza

Sweden has initiated a meeting with Israel’s foreign ministry and several European Union member states as well as others “to convey the urgent need to improve humanitarian access to Gaza,” Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson says.

“The life and health of children in Gaza must be protected,” Kristersson says on X without providing more detail.

Aid delivery in the Palestinian enclave has collapsed, with only a fraction of the food needed getting in and very little reaching the northern areas where Hamas health officials say children have started dying of malnutrition.
