    Somali Magazine – The World Health Organization hailed the beginning of a humanitarian ceasefire in the conflict between Israel and Hamas on Friday.

    “We welcome the start of the humanitarian pause in Gaza and the movement of humanitarian aid, including humanitarian aid for health,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on X.

    “It’s a positive step, but much more is required.” We will continue to push for a long-term ceasefire to prevent future civilian suffering.”

    Under the terms of the four-day humanitarian truce in Gaza, Hamas will release 50 Israelis in return for 150 Palestinian captives in Israeli jails.

    The four-day humanitarian pause between the Israeli army and Palestinian group Hamas came into effect on Friday morning in all areas of the Gaza Strip, temporarily stopping attacks for prisoner exchange and aid.

    Israel has launched relentless air and ground attacks in the Gaza Strip following the Hamas attack, killing more than 14,854 Palestinians, including 6,150 children and over 4,000 women, according to health authorities in the enclave.
