Malaysian PM Anwar Ibrahim says he has expressed Malaysia’s “unwavering support for the Palestinian people” to Hamas.
Ibrahim said he had a phone conversation with the head of Hamas’ political bureau, Ismail Haniyeh.
“Given the dire situation in Gaza, I strongly advocate for the immediate cessation of bombardment and the establishment of a humanitarian corridor in Rafah,” Ibrahim posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“It is also imperative for Israel to abandon their adherence to the politics of dispossession, immediately ceasefire with Hamas and genuinely pursue a peaceful resolution to end the ongoing conflict.”
In this spirit, we are committed to delivering humanitarian aid, particularly in the form of food and medicine to alleviate the suffering of those in need.
