This blockade was imposed shortly after Hamas' perpetration of large scale atrocities, killing 1300 Israelis, mostly civilians, on October 7th. However, maintaining a blockade also seems to be running against the Geneva Conventions (which Israel is not a signatory to). Question about asked here.
Power is off, clean water is scarce, and the last fuel for hospital emergency generators could expire, leaving Gaza facing a humanitarian crisis.
“We need to truck fuel into Gaza now. Fuel is the only way for people to have safe drinking water. If not, people will start dying of severe dehydration, among them young children, the elderly and women. Water is now the last remaining lifeline. I appeal for the siege on humanitarian assistance to be lifted now,” added Lazzarini.
I know a number of NGOs and governments have expressed unease or disapproval at this blockade and called upon Israel to respect the lives of Gaza civilians. But that was then and this is now. A blockade of water and fuel on day 10 is not the same as on day 2.
So, which governments have made a formal request to Israel to let adjust the blockade to let basic civilian necessities through? I am explicitly scoping NGOs out, except for the UN itself (or national requests through the UN), as many NGO's reason for being is pretty much making these kinds of requests. For the same reason, I am mostly interested in Western countries and/or traditional supporters of Israel.
Also out of scope are the wider Israeli military operations in Gaza. Only what diplomatic pressure has officially been put on Israel with regards to this blockade.
