Call for an Immediate End to the Violence in Israel-Palestine, the Release of Abducted Civilians the Release of Abducted Civilians and for Comprehensive Efforts Towards Regional Peace

The Romanian Peace Institute – PATRIR condemns in the strongest terms the violence which has racked Israel-Palestine over the last days. We stand with the millions of people in Israel and Palestine who are exhausted and sick and tired of the endless cycles of violence and recognize the right of all Israelis and Palestinians to live in peace, security and freedom from all forms of occupation and threat and fear of violence.

Now, more than ever, we call for direct, immediate and coordinated actions to stop the violence and support comprehensive efforts towards peace in the region. The development of a comprehensive regional approach to peace in which all actors in the region are involved provides the best possibility for achieving just and lasting peace for all.
