Demands are being made on Enda Kenny to reconvene the Dáil to discuss the urgent humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

Many TDs are supporting a call for an urgent sitting following the horrifying scenes that continue to emerge from the region.

The Taoiseach is being put under pressure to recall the Dáil to discuss how the Irish government will respond.

A 12-hour humanitarian ceasefire between Israel and Hamas has begun to allow civilians in Gaza to receive aid and evacuate to safer areas.

The truce is holding but doctors say 35 bodies have been pulled from beneath rubble since the violence was temporarily stopped.

Elaine Bradley is an Irish Human Rights worker based in the West Bank.

She says people on the ground are shocked by the lack of support from the international community.
