French President Emmanuel Macron criticized Israel’s military efforts against Hamas in the Gaza Strip, questioning the effectiveness of the stated goal to eradicate the group and warning that it could lead to a decade-long war.
He called for clarity on Israel’s objectives to prevent an “endless war” and urged a focus on achieving a lasting ceasefire and releasing hostages held by Hamas.
Macron reiterated the need for a two-state solution and emphasized the legitimate right of the Palestinian people to have a state. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)

“When we have a security approach where political despair feeds all the resentments, we do not build our own security in the long term,” Macron said, stating that there is a “legitimate right of the Palestinian people to have a state.”
“The responsibility for any harm to civilians lies with Hamas – ISIS and not with Israel,” Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said, emphasizing Hamas’ use of “schools, mosques and hospitals as terrorist command centres.”
Islamist Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said, “If we prioritise a two-state solution, the Gaza (issue) and threats will disappear. The exclusion of Hamas is not a realistic scenario.”
