Germany’s Demands Humanitarian Cease-fire in Gaza

Berlin, March 24, 2024, The Europe Today: Germany’s Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock has issued renewed demands for an “immediate humanitarian cease-fire” between Israel and Hamas and warned of the threat of famine facing civilians in “the hell of Gaza” as she set off on a diplomatic tour of the region on Sunday afternoon.

“Every single day, desperate mothers and fathers are grasping for whatever small meal they can for their children, and every single day too many are going empty-handed,” she said before departing for Cairo, Egypt, after which she which also visit Israel and the Palestinian territories for talks.

“Only an immediate humanitarian cease-fire leading to a permanent armistice can keep hopes of peace alive — for Palestinians and for Israelis,” she said.

Baerbock’s latest visit to the Middle East comes amid mounting international criticism of Israel’s military operation in Gaza, which has reduced much of the enclave to rubble and caused unprecedented death, displacement and hunger.
