Today, Tuesday, the leaders of the BRICS group called for an immediate and permanent humanitarian truce in the Gaza Strip, which is witnessing Israeli aggression for the 45th day in a row.
According to what was published by Agence France-Presse, the group of major emerging economies said in a statement on Tuesday evening: “We call for an immediate and permanent humanitarian truce in Gaza that leads to a cessation of hostilities.”
Today, Tuesday, the BRICS summit to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the Gaza Strip began on October 7, at the invitation of South Africa, the chair of the current session of the summit.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa opened the summit by accusing Israel of committing war crimes and causing genocide of Palestinians.
For his part, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi said, “Egypt is making every effort to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinians in Gaza,” according to what Cairo News Channel reported in urgent news.
He added in his video speech during his participation in the BRICS summit to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the Gaza Strip, today, Tuesday, that “Egypt opened the Rafah border crossing from the first moment to bring humanitarian aid into Gaza, and designated Al-Arish Airport to receive aid from various countries of the world.”
He noted that “the amount of aid entering Gaza is far less than the needs of its people, which requires a stand by the international community to ensure that aid enters in the required quantities.”
He explained that “Egyptian priorities at the current stage are to stop the bloodshed through an immediate ceasefire and safe and sustainable access to humanitarian aid.”
He stressed that “the Palestinians leaving their land is a grave violation of international law and international humanitarian law,” warning that “the proposals of Israel’s reoccupation of the Gaza Strip only aggravate and complicate the situation.”
He pointed out that “Egypt was and still is opposed to pressure on the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, and stands against attempts to force them to leave their land and homes, whether individually or collectively.”
He pointed out that “the international community stands silent in the face of unjustified violence by settlers against Palestinians in the West Bank.”
