While MPs in the House of Commons debate a motion for a ceasefire in Gaza, the Board of Deputies reminds political parties that a long-term resolution to the conflict will not be brokered in Parliament but by Israelis and Palestinians themselves. Our full statement:

Many people have been deeply affected by the tragic situation in Gaza. Any Parliamentary motion relating to a ceasefire must acknowledge both that those hostages taken by Hamas must be released and that Hamas’ capacity to inflict terror must be removed.

Political parties should understand that a long-term resolution to this conflict will not be brokered in Parliament, but by Israelis and Palestinians working with global partners.
