International actors debate stopping payments to Palestinians after Hamas attack on Israel


The European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, Janez Lenarcic, said humanitarian aid to Palestinians will continue, contradicting a statement made by his colleague earlier in the day.

“While I most strongly condemn the terrorist attack by Hamas, it is imperative to protect civilians,” he wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter, adding that it was also important to follow international humanitarian law.

Germany will continue to provide humanitarian aid for people in the Palestinian Territories, Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said.

“I think it would be fatal to simply say now that we should no longer provide food aid, for example,” Baerbock was quoted by German press agency DPA as saying.
