LFI deputies received the representative of the Palestinian Authority in France, Hala Abou Assira, at the National Assembly on Tuesday, November 7, from where they pleaded together for an “immediate ceasefire” in the Gaza Strip. , noted an AFP journalist.
“Stop the massacre in Gaza and the West Bank, immediate ceasefire”: tricolor scarves slung over their shoulders, Insoumis elected officials, joined by communists, posed with her behind a large banner bearing this appeal, in a garden in Bourbon Palace.
Surrounded by dozens of deputies, Hala Abou Hassira thanked them for “this solemn moment of support for the Palestinian people in the face of the massacre perpetrated against them in the Gaza Strip.” “There is an urgent need for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip,” she declared to journalists, pleading for “the provision of a humanitarian corridor at the same time which would allow the survival of the Palestinian people. “The moment is very serious, the loss of civilian and innocent lives is enormous on all sides, and innocent lives must be saved on all sides, Palestinian and Israeli,” she added.
Earlier in the morning, the leader of the Insoumis deputies Mathilde Panot told the press that France “should have a strong voice to call for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire and above all to reopen the peace process” . A call for a “humanitarian truce” is not sufficient according to Mathilde Panot, because it leaves open, according to her, the possibility of new Israeli bombings at the end.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday rejected a ceasefire in the war against Hamas, triggered by the bloody and unprecedentedly violent attack by the Palestinian Islamist movement on October 7 on Israeli soil from the Gaza Strip which he controls. In retaliation, Israel vowed to “annihilate” Hamas, relentlessly shelling the besieged territory where 2.4 million Palestinians are crowded. According to Hamas, more than 10,000 people were killed in Israeli bombings.
