In Russia, the media reported that Moscow welcomed the coming into effect (…) of a ceasefire in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict area, Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at her weekly briefing with the press.

For its part, China on Friday hailed the ceasefire agreed upon between Israel and the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in Gaza and it announced the urgent provision of aid to Palestine to support its government and people to face the crisis resulting from the conflict with Tel Aviv.

In addition, from the Vatican, Pope Francis welcomed the news about the ceasefire between the warring parties and hoped they would find the path of understanding.

‘My thoughts turn to the events taking place these days in the Holy Land. I thank God for the decision to halt the armed conflicts and acts of violence, and I pray for pursuit of paths of dialogue and peace,’ the Supreme Pontiff said.

Through its Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, France hailed the ceasefire between Hamas and Israel that came into effect on Thursday night and ended the cycle of violence that took a heavy toll on the civilian population, more than 230 casualties.

On the other hand, from its headquarters in Egypt, the Arab League stressed its delight over the truce in Gaza, but without forgetting the crimes committed, which must not go unpunished, Secretary General Ahmed Abuelgeit said.
