Extension of ceasefire in Gaza welcome but full, permanent ceasefire required – Matt Carthy TD

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Foreign Affairs and Defence, Matt Carthy TD, has welcomed news that a temporary ceasefire in Gaza has been extended by a further 2 days. 

 He called for a full, immediate ceasefire. 

Speaking on Monday evening, Teachta Carthy said: 

 “I welcome news this evening that the temporary ceasefire in Gaza has been extended by a further 2 days. This extension must be continued further, to facilitate peaceful dialogue and resolution. Nothing less than a full and immediate ceasefire is required. 

 “We must see the immediate release of all hostages, along with the unconditional adherence by all parties to their commitments under international law and the UN charter. Israel simply cannot revert to the bombardment of Gaza which has already resulted in the deaths of over 6,000 children. The provocative actions by Israeli forces and settlers in the West Bank, which have been continuing throughout the trice period, must immediately stop.

“Ireland must push to be a voice on the international stage for an urgent end to this horrific war and for decisive international intervention that leads to a peaceful resolution based on a negotiated settlement including an independent Palestinian state.”
