World should impose a solution to end Gaza conflict, says French minister

World powers should impose from outside a political solution to halt the conflict between Israel and Hamas that has killed hundreds in Gaza, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Monday.

Fabius issued the statement after a Palestinian official said an Israeli air strike killed 10 people and wounded about 30 on Sunday in a UN-run school in the southern Gaza Strip, and Hamas fired rockets at Israel.

"This is why we need a political solution, of which the components are known, and which I believe should be imposed by the international community, because the two parties - despite countless efforts - have unfortunately shown themselves incapable of completing talks," he said in a statement.

"Ceasefire, imposition of a two-state solution and security for Israel - there is no other way," he added.

This is a GENOCIDE and
no one is moving a single finger to stop it. The US are supplying arms and Europe are completely under the control of Zionists.
The people should act by demonstrating as the various Governments are not adequately representing their people. What to expect from this person as he is himself a zionist.
All are calling for a ceasefire but why not starting by sanctions and boycotts of Israeli and US products???? Instead they focus on sanctions on Russia. Do not you think that there a serious problem here? Please do not close your eyes on Palestine. Those are human people who are resisting like French resisted to the German during WW2. Please start the boycott from now.
