“We urge your government, and all world leaders, to honor all lives in the Holy Land and call for and facilitate a ceasefire without delay: an end to the bombing of Gaza and the safe release of the hostages,” the letter reads. .

The bombings that Israel has carried out systematically for two weeks have left more than a million Palestinians homeless, injured and facing food insecurity. The UN assured that the Israeli attacks ignore the human rights of the population.

More than 5,000 people have died in the last week and a half, a figure that anyone with a conscience knows is catastrophic. “We believe that all life is sacred, regardless of faith or ethnicity, and we condemn the killing of Palestinian and Israeli civilians,” the letter continues.

The signatories add that half of Gaza's two million residents are children, and more than two-thirds are refugees and their descendants are forced to flee their homes. "Humanitarian aid must be allowed to reach them."

We are adding our voices to those of the United States Congress, UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders, the International Committee of the Red Cross and many others. Saving lives is a moral imperative,” the text reads.

In the letter it was revealed that At the time of signing it, 6,000 bombs had been dropped on Gazawhich translates into the death of a Palestinian child every 15 seconds.

"Children and families in Gaza have virtually been left without food, water, electricity, medicine and safe access to hospitals, after days of airstrikes and cuts to all supply routes," said UNICEF spokesperson James Elder.

We recommend: Gaza reports its deadliest day; more than 700 dead from bombings.

The artists concluded by saying:

We refuse to tell future generations the story of our silence, of standing by and doing nothing. As Emergency Relief Chief Martin Griffiths told UN News, “history is watching.”

So far neither President Joe Biden nor the White House has responded.
