The UAE's President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan reiterated his call for the protection of civilians in Gaza.

During a virtual BRICS summit discussing the situation in the Gaza Strip, Sheikh Mohamed also called for unrestricted humanitarian access and an immediate ceasefire.

He urged the international community to do all in its power to bring an end to the conflict and ease the suffering of those affected.

In a statement issued at the summit, the UAE President called for an urgent end to hostilities, warning that allowing the fighting to continue will result in further casualties and an increased risk of the conflict spilling over to threaten regional stability.

His Highness noted that the only way to address the crisis is to revive the peace process and resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the basis of the two-State solution and the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian State on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
