OTTAWA– Liberal Leader Bob Rae made the following statement today on the announced ceasefire between Israel and Gaza:
“We welcome the ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians in effect today. To be effective, it must be a clear and enforceable agreement, and there must be an end to all terrorist attacks. We hope this is the first step on the path towards a comprehensive peace, and the guarantee of the safety and security of citizens of the region.
Our thoughts go out to the families of civilians who have been killed and injured in Israel and Gaza during this challenging time.”
