Votes from around the world for a ceasefire

Calls to end the fighting are coming from many places around the world. The World Council of Churches (WCC) called for an immediate ceasefire and the opening of humanitarian corridors in Palestine and Israel.

What is needed is the “immediate, unconditional release and safe return of all hostages,” as well as “an immediate ceasefire and the opening of humanitarian corridors,” reads a statement released Monday by the World Council Executive Committee of Churches during a meeting in Abuja, Nigeria. .

It also calls for “guarantees for the uninterrupted distribution and delivery of essential humanitarian assistance, including water, food, medical supplies and fuel, as well as the restoration of electricity and internet services in the Gaza Strip.” After the seemingly endless whirlwind of violence and suffering is brought to an end as quickly as possible, the root causes must be addressed.

“We deplore the staggering inability of the international community and the political leaders in the region to persevere in the search for a lasting peace, based on justice and mutual respect for equal human dignity and equal rights of all, and to end the cycle of violence to maintain.” the statement said.
