French President Emmanuel Macron Says It’s Time for Ceasefire in Gaza

HeadlineNov 13, 2023

The White House says it is in “active consultations” with Israel’s military over fighting in and around hospitals. On Friday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that “far too many Palestinians have been killed” in Gaza, but the U.S. has yet to call for a ceasefire or reconsider any of its “unconditional” military aid to Israel. French President Emmanuel Macron called on Israel to stop killing women, babies and elderly people in Gaza and, for the first time since the assault started, called for a ceasefire.

President Emmanuel Macron: “I think this is the only solution we have, is a ceasefire, because it’s impossible to explain: We want to fight against terrorism by killing innocent people.”

Macron said he hoped other countries, including the U.S. and the U.K., would join in the call for a ceasefire. France last month banned Palestinian solidarity protests.
