Paris, France – In a candid interview with the BBC, French President Emmanuel Macron has called for an immediate halt to the violence in Gaza, urging Israel to stop its bombing campaign. Macron stated unequivocally that there is “no justification” for the current bombing, which has resulted in civilian casualties, including women and children.

While acknowledging Israel’s right to self-defense, Macron emphasized the need for a ceasefire, suggesting it would be beneficial for Israel. He also condemned the actions of Hamas, which France, along with other Western nations, categorizes as a terrorist organization.

The French President’s comments followed a humanitarian aid conference in Paris, where the consensus was a need for a “humanitarian pause” leading to a ceasefire. Macron highlighted the indiscriminate nature of the current bombing in Gaza, underscoring the lack of legitimacy in targeting civilians.

Addressing broader issues, Macron discussed the potential for Middle East violence to affect France, calling for unity against antisemitism. He also touched on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, emphasizing France’s duty to support Ukraine and the possibility of future negotiations with Moscow.

Macron criticized major tech companies like Meta and Google for failing to effectively moderate online extremism. He linked climate change to global security issues, citing its role in exacerbating terrorism, particularly in regions like West Africa.

The interview, conducted at the Élysée Palace, reflects Macron’s stance on key global issues, balancing the need for security with humanitarian concerns and the complexities of international relations.
