SDLP backs immediate ceasefire in Gaza

palestine gaza ceasefire

SDLP MPs will for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza during an Opposition Day debate in the House of Commons this afternoon.

Speaking ahead of the vote today, SDLP Leader Colum Eastwood MP said:

“30,000 people are dead in Gaza. Entire communities have been reduced to rubble and millions have been displaced. Now the IDF is threatening to attack the only safe places left in Rafah and the surrounding areas in a horrific new front against the people of Palestine. It is, for the avoidance of all doubt, a genocide and the international community has enabled it.

“The only legitimate and ethical path to peace is an immediate ceasefire. Anything else is totally deficient.”
