The Elders Applaud Palestinian Reconciliation; Renew Call For End To Blockade Of Gaza

18 October 2017 7:00 AM, PDT

The Elders warmly welcomed the reconciliation agreement reached by Fatah and Hamas in Cairo last Thursday.

The agreement is an essential step towards the full reunification of the West Bank and Gaza, and keeps alive prospects for the peaceful emergence of a Palestinian state.

After 10 years of internal conflict, and several previous failed attempts at reconciliation, the latest developments also hold out the prospect of an end to the blockade of Gaza. During this period, the lives of over two million Gazans have been blighted by three destructive wars and tight restrictions on the movement of people and goods in and out of the territory.

The Elders commended the crucial role played by the Egyptian Government in bringing about this latest – and most promising – reconciliation initiative.

Kofi Annan, Chair of The Elders and former Un Secretary-General, said: “The restoration of a single authority throughout the occupied territories is long overdue. »
