Intl. pressure on Israel should increase to achieve ceasefire

TEHRAN, Jan. 23 (MNA) – The Palestinian Authority foreign minister held separate meetings with counterparts from France, Poland, Sweden, Spain, and Cyprus on the sidelines of the EU ministerial meeting, discussing efforts on a ceasefire in Gaza.

Riyad al-Maliki informed his colleagues about the carnage that Israeli troops carried out in Khan Yunis in southern Gaza on Monday, underscoring the international community’s responsibility for pressuring Israel to stop the aggression in order to prevent a deterioration of the situation in the region, TASS reported.

According to al-Maliki, it is necessary to increase the international pressure on Israel in order to achieve a ceasefire, which will make it possible to deliver ever increasing volumes of humanitarian aid and will create an option to discuss the post-war future.

Israel began its military aggression against Gaza on October 7, 2023, following Operation al-Aqsa Storm by the enclave's Resistance movements.

More than 25,105 Palestinians, mostly women and children, have been killed in the Israeli military onslaught so far, while over 62,680 others have been injured.
