Director-General welcomes Ceasefire in Gaza Strip

The Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, welcomes the ceasefire agreement reached in relation to the Gaza Strip in order to bring about a sustainable and durable cessation of hostilities that have been affecting the Gaza Strip and Israel.

The Director-General recalled that media and educational facilities should not be used either as targets or as shields for military purposes.

 

“I commend the efforts of all those who worked to achieve this ceasefire and I hope for the earliest restoration of a peaceful environment so that Israeli and Palestinian children can return to school”, she stated.
