Diplomacy is the Humanitarian Path Forward In Ukraine and Gaza

 

December 25, 2023 | Image source | As Christmas was celebrated today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu escalated airstrikes against civilians in Gaza and vowed to increase hostilities in a cycle of violence that has been going on for over a century.

Negotiations and diplomatic efforts are crucial to ending violence and resolving conflicts by providing a solid foundation for lasting peace.
