Joint Israeli-Palestinian GI call for a ceasefire in Gaza

Date: 30.12.08

In light of the developments in the Gaza Strip and in southern Israel in the past few days, Geneva Initiative's headquarters in Ramallah and Tel Aviv jointly call for an immediate ceasefire between Israelis and Palestinians, so that the residents of the Gaza Strip and of the Israeli towns and cities surrounding Gaza can live normal lives.

Geneva Initiative opposes the killing of civilians and firmly believes that there is no military solution to the conflict. Both sides must do everything in their power to stop the cycle of violence and create an atmosphere of political hope that would raise mutual trust and facilitate peace talks.

For these reasons, Geneva Initiative calls on the international community to assist the sides in promptly reaching a ceasefire and resuming negotiations.
