Policy and Advocacy Officer for Israel and Palestine at Christian Aid, William Bell, told Premier's News Hour: "Some of the medical relief organisations that we support are able to get out, albeit in a pretty precarious situation and often under fire, to offer some immediate assistance.

"A lot of the support that we're going to be able to give and which we're preparing for is of course once a ceasefire is in place."
