Bahrain welcomes Gaza ceasefire

On Friday Bahrain’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the Kingdom welcomed the ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip

The ministry lauded the efforts of Egypt to lead the negotiations to “stop the bloodshed and end military operations in the Gaza Strip,” the report added. The ministry also said it was important to continue the international efforts to resolve the issue and work towards the two-state solution to establish lasting peace

A cease-fire between Israel and Hamas, the militia which controls the Gaza Strip, came into force early Friday after 11 days of deadly fighting that pounded the Palestinian enclave and forced countless Israelis to seek shelter from rockets.
