King Abdullah II, Presidents El-Sisi and Macron Call for Ceasefire, Humanitarian Aid, Two-State Solution

King Adbullah II joined Presidents El-Sisi and Macron in a call for a Gaza ceasefire.

April 10, 2024 (EIRNS)—"The war in Gaza and the catastrophic humanitarian suffering it is causing must end now,” begins the opinion piece. “Violence, terror and war cannot bring peace to the Middle East. The two-state solution will.”

The authors are King Abdullah II of Jordan, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi of Egypt, and President Emmanuel Macron of France.

“On March 25, the UN Security Council finally assumed its responsibility by demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. This is a critical step that must be fully implemented without further delay,” the heads of state reiterate.

In addition to demands for hostage release and for broader negotiations including detainees, the trio write to “warn against the dangerous consequences of an Israeli offensive on Rafah, where about 1.5 million Palestinian civilians have sought refuge. Such an offensive would only bring more death and suffering, heighten the risks and consequences of mass displacement of the people of Gaza and threaten regional escalation. We reiterate our equal respect for all lives.”
