“We are looking to send more assistance,” he added, highlighting India’s concern about the increasing humanitarian crisis.

Addressing the broader context, Bagchi expressed India’s condemnation of the attacks by Hamas on Israel. “We had also strongly condemned the horrific terrorist attack on October 7 and our zero tolerance for terrorism and the need for immediate and unconditional release of the hostages,” he emphasized.

India‘s diplomatic efforts aim at not only urging de-escalation but also facilitating more humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people. Bagchi indicated that discussions were underway regarding additional assistance to address the escalating crisis.
