On World Humanitarian Day, we recall the IDF’s many humanitarian mission around the globe.
August 19 was designated by the UN General Assembly as World Humanitarian Day to coincide with the anniversary of the 2003 Islamic suicide bombing of UN headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq, when 22 humanitarian workers lost their lives.
In the words of Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion: “The principles of mutual assistance and equality should also constitute the basis for international relations between people…[and] must be based on the solidarity of all human beings, derived from fraternity and mutual assistance in every sphere of life.”
Take time to remember the amazing humanitarian work the IDF has carried out around the world.
