China announced on Friday that it will be sending urgent humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip through the United Nations channels, Anadolu news agency reported.

“In light of the current severe situation, China believes that the top priority amid escalating Israel-Palestine conflict is an immediate cease-fire,” state-run Global Times quoted China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi as saying.

The minister added that Beijing’s special envoy for the Middle East will soon visit the relevant countries in the region.

Israeli forces launched a brutal military campaign against Gaza, following a military operation by the Palestinian group Hamas in Israeli territories.

Israel has cut off water and electricity supplies to Gaza, further worsening the living conditions in an area that has reeled under a hermetic siege since 2007.
