Methodist Church: immediate ceasefire in Lebanon

Methodist leaders call for immediate ceasefire in Lebanon

Anthea Cox, Methodist Co-ordinating Secretary for Public Life and Social Justice, says; “The Prime Minister has talked of “getting a UN Security Council resolution, which will give us an opportunity both to have a complete cessation of hostilities and to do so on a sustainable and lasting basis." We call upon the British Government to demand an immediate ceasefire and to distance itself from the US support of the Israeli military campaign in Lebanon. We welcome the Government’s call for a UN peacekeeping force in South Lebanon and urge the disarming of militias in Lebanon as part of a negotiated settlement.”
