Sierra Leone’s Chief Minister, Dr. David Moinina Sengeh, has called for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza, emphasizing the need to protect civilian lives and ensure unimpeded humanitarian assistance. Sierra Leone has also emphasized diplomatic and political avenues for a just ‘two-state solution.’ The Chief Minister has called on all parties to avoid actions endangering lives and escalating tensions. He has urged everyone to work towards peace, security, and stability in the Middle East.
This statement was made in response to the ongoing crisis in Gaza, which has been escalating in recent weeks. The United Nations has warned that the situation in Gaza is nearing a “full-blown collapse” and has called for an immediate ceasefire to prevent further loss of life. The UN Secretary-General has also stressed the need for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, calling it the only way to address the legitimate aspirations of both Israelis and Palestinians.
Sierra Leone’s call for a humanitarian ceasefire and a two-state solution is a welcome development in the ongoing crisis in Gaza. It is hoped that other countries will follow Sierra Leone’s lead and work towards a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
