Churches and associated groups around the globe have mobilised to send aid and assistance to those affected by Israeli attacks on Gaza and to lobby their governments for a cease-fire in the tiny territory where 1.5 million Palestinians live. Three mobile health clinics, supported by DanChurchAid, a Danish aid and development group, were destroyed in a night-time Israeli air strike on 5 January.

Israel says the aim of its campaign is to halt the continuous firing of rockets into its territory from Gaza. DanChurchAid along with individuals, groups, churches and councils of churches from Kenya to Sweden to the United States to Australia are carrying out hundreds of advocacy actions involving Christians concerned about the Gaza crisis.
