Baghdad President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, welcomed the ceasefire agreement between the Israeli government and the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) and urged the two sides to reinforce it.

“I urge the two sides to consolidate it and achieve long-term stability. Only a political solution will bring lasting peace and security for all,” Von der Leyen wrote on Twitter.

It is mentioned that Israeli government and Hamas agreed to the armistice, after Egyptian mediation, which came into effect in the early hours of Friday.
