Egyptian FM calls for Gaza ceasefire before Ramadan

Ankara, Mar 1 (UNI) Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry on Friday called for a truce in Gaza before the holy month of Ramadan expected to begin this year around March 11.
"I believe that everyone recognizes that it is necessary to reach a ceasefire before Ramadan both for the security of Palestinians and due to its religious nature," Shoukry told the semi-official Anadolu Agency in southern Türkiye where he was attending the Antalya Diplomacy Forum.
The Egyptian minister emphasized that the military actions during Ramadan would not only affect civilians in Gaza and the West Bank but also create a tense atmosphere in the Arab and Muslim world.
