AMMAN, Jordan, 5 January 2009 At a UNICEF-organized press conference here this morning, Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah made an urgent plea on behalf of all the civilians living in Gaza especially children for a humanitarian ceasefire and for the international community to do all it can to help alleviate the suffering.

Queen Rania, who is UNICEFs Eminent Advocate for Children, was accompanied by UNICEF Regional Director Sigrid Kaag and other UN agency representatives.

In an urgent message to world leaders, Her Majesty warned that our humanity is incomplete when children, irrespective of nationality, are victims of military operations. She called on all nations to act to end the fighting and open all crossings, especially Karni, to permit the uninterrupted passage of wheat, fuel, medicine and other vital supplies.

Rules of war (in a nutshell)

https://youtu.be/HwpzzAefx9M Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
