A senior US State Department official resigns over Gaza

An official in the US State Department's Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration announced her resignation, following a recently published government report that claimed that Israel "does not obstruct the entry of humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip," according to what the Washington Post reported.


Stacy Gilbert submitted her resignation after sending an email to employees on Tuesday, in which she explained her view that the State Department “was wrong” in its conclusion that Tel Aviv did not obstruct the entry of humanitarian aid into Gaza, after the publication of a report on the aid in a presidential memorandum known as the NSM. -20.


Gilbert said in her letter that Israel is “impeding the delivery of aid to civilians in Gaza,” as the lack of aid flows continued in the weeks following the report’s release, but the report did not find sufficient reasons to stop support for Israel.
