Mohamed Salah calls for humanitarian aid to Gaza IMMEDIATELY as Liverpool star urges the world leaders ‘to come together to prevent further slaughter of innocent souls’ as the Israel-Palestine conflict continues
- Mohamed Salah issued a call for world leaders to help ‘prevent the slaughter’
- The Liverpool forward has reportedly donated an undisclosed fee to civilians
- Humanitarian aid is currently being blocked from entering into Gaza
Mohamed Salah has issued a call for humanitarian aid to reach Gaza ‘immediately’ in an emotional and powerful social media message as the Israel-Palestine conflict continues.
Tuesday saw a massive explosion that killed hundreds of people at a crowded hospital in Gaza City, which the Liverpool forward described as ‘horrifying’, while disagreement continues as to which side was at fault.
Palestinian officials say the horror explosion was caused by an Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) air strike, while officials in the Jewish state insisted it was the result of a ‘failed’ rocket launched by terrorist group Islamic Jihad.
Reports in Salah’s native Egypt earlier this week suggesting he had donated a significant but undisclosed fee to the Red Crescent via agent Ramy Abbas to help innocent civilians in the area receive aid.
Salah recorded a monologue issuing a call for world leaders to help ‘prevent’ any further loss of life and to stop families being ‘torn apart’.

‘It’s not always easy to speak at a time like this. There has been too much violence and brutality, the escalation in recent weeks has been unbearable to witness,’ began the Egyptian’s powerful message.
‘All lives are sacred and must be protected. The massacres need to stop, families are being torn apart.
‘What’s clear now is that humanitarian aid to Gaza must be allowed immediately. The people there are in terrible conditions. The scenes at the hospital last night were horrifying.
‘The people of Gaza need food, water and medical supplies urgently. I am calling on world leaders to come together and prevent the slaughter of innocent souls. Humanity must prevail.’
Humanitarian aid is currently blocked from entering Gaza – as its residents are blocked from escaping – at the Israeli and Egyptian borders, limiting the ability of aid organisations to bring relief following a fortnight under siege for its residents.
Salah becomes the most high-profile Premier League footballer to speak out about the ongoing conflict. The Palestinian health ministry says at least 4,000 people have been killed and many more injured in the Gaza strip since fighting broke out two weeks ago.
The Egyptian and team-mates will join all Premier League players in wearing black armbands this weekend as the Premier League will pay respect to the innocent loss of life in Israel and Gaza.
‘The Premier League is shocked and saddened by the escalating crisis in Israel and Gaza,’ read a statement this week. ‘And strongly condemns the horrific and brutal acts of violence against innocent civilians.’
