BYYasir Rehman


Australia has called on Israel and Hamas to agree ceasefire and warned that any delay will only see further lives lost.

“The human suffering in Gaza is unacceptable. This war must end”, Foreign Minister Penny Wong said in a statement on Tuesday.

It is six months since Australia voted with 152 countries for a ceasefire at the United Nations.

She said Australia support for President Biden’s ceasefire proposal and we are pleased to see growing international support, including from G7 leaders.

“Australia is working with countries that support peace to press all parties to agree to the terms immediately”, she added.

She emphasized that civilians must be protected, the catastrophic humanitarian situation must be addressed, and the hostages must be released.
