Signatories:
Mr Eerik-Niiles KROSS, Estonia, ALDE ; Mr Oleksii GONCHARENKO, Ukraine, EC/DA ; Mr Christoph HOFFMANN, Germany, ALDE ; Mr Serhii KALCHENKO, Ukraine, EC/DA ; Mr Emanuelis ZINGERIS, Lithuania, EPP/CD
Origin
2024 - First part-session
In the draft resolution, replace paragraphs 8.1 and 8.2 with the following paragraphs:

"calls for a permanent ceasefire and for a restart of efforts towards a political solution provided that all hostages are immediately and unconditionally released and the terrorist organisation Hamas is dismantled;

calls for rapid, safe and unhindered access to humanitarian assistance for the population in Gaza;"

Explanatory note

A ceasefire without release of the hostages endangers the life of hostages and would extend the war.
