Israel must stop killing babies and women in Gaza, French President Emmanuel Macron told the BBC.
He said there was “no justification” for the bombing, saying a ceasefire would benefit Israel.
While we recognize Israel’s right to protect itself, “we call on them to stop this bombing” in Gaza.
He also stressed that France “clearly condemns” the “terrorist” actions of Hamas.
France, like Israel, the USA, Great Britain and other Western countries, considers Hamas a terrorist organization.
Asked if he wanted other leaders, including the US and Great Britain, to join his calls for a ceasefire, he said: “I hope so.”
