Gaza Strip: Mozambique Calls for Immediate Ceasefire Approved by UNSC

The government has declared that the situation in the Gaza Strip is catastrophic and called for immediate compliance with the ceasefire approved on Monday, March 25, by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), as reported by Radio Mozambique (RM).

According to the media outlet, the SC adopted a resolution demanding an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in the Gaza Strip during Ramadan, the holy month for Muslims.

In total, there were 14 votes in favor, including Mozambique’s, and one abstention from the United States of America.

The motion for a resolution was presented by Mozambique’s ambassador to the United Nations, Pedro Comissário, on behalf of the body’s ten elected member states.

This step was welcomed by the government during the Council of Ministers session, according to spokesman Filimão Suazi.

The resolution presented by Mozambique to the UN Security Council also demands the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages, as well as the guarantee of humanitarian access to meet their medical and other humanitarian needs in the Gaza Strip, the source said.

After another five months of war between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, this was the first time that the Security Council managed to pass a resolution on a ceasefire in the enclave, as several projects were consecutively vetoed.
