Foreign Minister Fidan: We urgently need a humanitarian ceasefire

Minister of Foreign Affairs Hakan Fidan stated that a humanitarian ceasefire should be established urgently in Gaza.

According to the figures announced by the UN, there is great destruction and terrible loss of life in the north of Gaza. On the other hand, the population in the south of Gaza is increasing every day due to forced migration. With the humanitarian crisis, Israel’s continuation of attacks will lead to much more loss of life. How urgent do you think it is for the international community to act in unity? What can the contact group do in this context?
