Canadian PM Calls for Humanitarian Pause in Israel-Hamas Conflict

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called for a large humanitarian pause in the confrontation between Israel and Hamas.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called for a significant humanitarian pause in the Israel-Hamas conflict. 

This pause is intended to facilitate the release of hostages and the delivery of essential aid to address the pressing needs of civilians in Gaza.

Aiming for Hostage Release and Aid Delivery:

Trudeau stressed the importance of using this humanitarian pause to release hostages and continue evacuating foreign citizens from Gaza. 

He emphasized that the pause should enable substantial aid delivery to alleviate the dire humanitarian crisis fronted by the people of Gaza.

The Prime Minister noted a disturbing increase in anti-Semitism globally and within Canada, where acts such as Molotov cocktails thrown at synagogues have been reported. 

He also highlighted a rise in Islamophobia in Canada, stating that these behaviors are not reflective of Canadian values.

Commitment to Canadian Values:

Trudeau asserted that these actions do not align with Canada’s identity and values, emphasizing that Canadians should not feel scared on their streets. He expressed solidarity with those who are experiencing fear and pain.

Trudeau underlined the importance of working towards a two-state solution that would result in a viable Palestinian state and a secure, viable Israel. He acknowledged that achieving this solution would require significant effort.

IDF’s Progress in Gaza:

The Israel Defense Forces reported the discovery and destruction of 130 Hamas tunnels in Gaza since the start of the ground invasion. These tunnels were equipped with provisions for a prolonged stay, including water and oxygen supplies.

Hamas accused the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) of collusion with Israel as thousands of Palestinians moved from northern Gaza to the southern part of the Strip using IDF-arranged displacement routes.
