Chris Gunness, UNRWA spokesperson
2014.07.22 03:42:50

The number of people seeking sanctuary with UNRWA from the fighting in Gaza has gone up by over 400% in the last 4 days. The current total is over 83,000 people in 60 schools. As we lead the international response to the Gaza crisis, funds are urgently needed and I urge particularly state donors to give generously to our 60 million USD flash appeal for Gaza. This will fund further emergency work and assistance such as home repairs and psychiatric counseling for traumatized children during a 3 to 6 month recovery phase.

-- Chris Gunness, UNRWA spokesperson.

More from Putin

"It's essential that a full team of experts under the auspices of ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), the corresponding international commission, is at the crash site.

"We must do everything to ensure its full and absolute security, ensure humanitarian corridors that are necessary for its work.

"For its part, Russia will do everything that we can so that the conflict in eastern Ukraine moves from today's military phase to a discussion phase at the negotiating table, [by] exclusively peaceful and diplomatic means."

Israel's ambassador to the United Nations
2014.07.22 03:14:30

Ron Prosor, Israel's ambassador to the United Nations has dismissed the report of a kidnapped soldier as untrue: "There's no kidnapped Israeli soldier and those rumours are untrue."

But Abu Ubaida, the masked spokesman of the Qassam Brigades on Sunday said: "Qassam Brigades captured a Zionist soldier.".

He identified the soldier as Shaul Aron and recited what he said was Aron's identity tag number. He gave no other evidence the soldier was in the custody of the Islamist militants.

Aron would be the first Israeli soldier held captive in Gaza since 2011, when Israel released more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners to free Gilad Shalit, a soldier who was held for more than five years after his 2006 capture in a cross-border raid.

2014.07.22 03:13:35

UN Security Council will vote on Monday on an Australia-proposed resolution demanding international access to the Ukraine plane crash site and a cease-fire around the area, with diplomats pressuring a reluctant Russia to approve it.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said his country would view a Russian veto of the resolution "very badly," adding that "no reasonable person" could object to its wording.

Statement from the Russian president, Vladimir Putin
2014.07.22 02:46:18

And here's excerpts of a statement from the Russian president, Vladimir Putin:

"We have repeatedly called on all warring parties to immediately stop the bloodshed and to sit down at the negotiating table. We can confidently say that if June 28 fighting in eastern Ukraine were not renewed, then this tragedy would not have happened for sure.

"No one should, and no one has the right to use this tragedy to achieve their  own selfish political goals. These events should not divide, but unite people.  It's necessary that all people who answer for this situation in this region of  Ukraine increase their responsibility before their own people and the people of  the countries whose representatives are victims of this catastrophe."

"Palestine doesn't have armed forces; they just have a state that's still being created. So it's not a war between two armies. Israel has the world's most modern weapons and plans it so that, in a very precise way, the missiles reach where they want them to reach. Undoubtedly, they've committed genocide"
