Angelina Jolie condemns leaders who do not support ceasefire in Gaza

MOSCOW, November 1American actress Angelina Jolie, who previously served as a goodwill ambassador and special envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), called Israel's actions deliberate bombing of the population of the Gaza Strip, which has nowhere to flee, and said that world leaders who do not advocate a ceasefire , are involved in crimes.
“”These are deliberate attacks on a stranded population with nowhere to escape. Gaza has been an open-air prison for almost two decades and is now fast becoming a mass grave… while the whole world watches, and many governments actively support, millions of Palestinian civilians – children, women, families are being collectively punished and… at the same time they are being deprived of food, medicine and humanitarian aid, contrary to international law,” Jolie wrote on social networks.

“”By refusing to demand a humanitarian ceasefire and blocking the UN Security Council from introducing it in relation to one or both sides, world leaders are involved in these crimes,” the actress added.
On October 7, Israel was subjected to an unprecedented-scale rocket attack from the Gaza Strip as part of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, announced by the military wing of the Palestinian Hamas movement. After this, the organization’s fighters penetrated into the border areas in southern Israel.

In response, the Israel Defense Forces launched Operation Iron Swords against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Within a few days, the Israeli military took control of all populated areas near the border with Gaza and began carrying out air strikes on targets, including civilians, in the strip. Israel also announced a complete blockade of the Gaza Strip: the supply of water, food, electricity, medicine, and fuel was stopped.
The number of victims in the Gaza Strip exceeded 8.7 thousand people, over 22 thousand were injured. In Israel, according to local authorities, more than 1.3 thousand people died. The Russian Embassy reported that during the escalation of the conflict, 20 Russians were killed, two were taken hostage, and seven were listed as missing. According to various sources, about 150 Israelis may be held captive by Hamas. The movement itself stated that there are about 200-250 prisoners in the Gaza Strip.
The Russian Foreign Ministry called on the parties to stop hostilities. According to the position of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the settlement of the Middle East crisis is possible only on the basis of a “two-state” formula approved by the UN Security Council, which provides for the creation of an independent Palestinian state within the 1967 borders with its capital in East Jerusalem.
The Palestinian-Israeli conflict, related to the territorial interests of the parties, has been a source of tension and clashes in the region for many decades. A UN decision with the active role of the USSR in 1947 determined the creation of two states – Israel and Palestine, but only the Israeli one was created.
