MONROVIA: In a powerful statement issued yesterday, House Speaker Dr. Bhofal Chambers has called for an immediate cessation of hostilities in Gaza. Recognizing the devastating impact of conflict on the lives of innocent civilians, Speaker Chambers emphasized the paramount importance of peace over war.
The Speaker of the Liberian House of Representatives affirmed, “Peace is better than war. Whatever the case, the cause of war often lingers, but peace can be a lasting structure that ensures the safety of everyone,” Speaker Chambers. He expressed concern over the dire situation in Gaza, where vital institutions such as schools, places of worship, and medical facilities are at risk.
Speaker Chambers continued, “You have children, you have churches, mosques, hospitals, and everything now is almost anybody’s guess. So, we think peace must be given a chance in that part of the world. We are all equal; as such, let God bless us and intervene.”
Calling on both the people of Israel and Hamas in the Gaza area to ceasefire, Speaker Chambers urged an end to hostilities, emphasizing that the world cannot afford any more violence. He highlighted the shared humanity and the need for a collective effort to establish peace in the region.
“We call on the people of Israel and Hamas, the Gaza area, to stop the hostilities because the world doesn’t need any more violence than is already occurring,” concluded Speaker Chambers.
The Republic of Liberia, under the leadership of Dr. Bhofal Chambers, stands in solidarity with the international community in advocating for a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Gaza, he said.
