Group of Seven (G7) Calls for Ceasefire in Israel-Hamas Conflict

Bayan News – Foreign ministers of the Group of Seven (G7) countries, during a meeting in Tokyo, the capital of Japan, called for a ceasefire in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

Antony Blinken, the U.S. Secretary of State, was present at this meeting. The foreign ministers of the G7 released a joint statement, urging immediate action to provide humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian people.

They emphasized the need for a “cessation of hostilities” and the establishment of “humanitarian corridors to facilitate urgent aid and the transfer of non-combatants” to address the “deepening humanitarian crisis.”

The foreign ministers of the G7 also reiterated their demand for the release of hostages.

The joint statement by the G7 foreign ministers did not make any specific reference to a ceasefire agreement between the conflicting parties.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has thus far rejected calls for a ceasefire, stating that it would allow Hamas to regroup. However, he mentioned considering a “tactical pause” in the conflict.
