Israel must make ceasefire permanent - Brown

Senator Brown, 1st August 2006

Greens Leader Bob Brown called on the Australian government to use maximum pressure to convert Israel's 48-hour suspension of bombing into a permanent ceasefire.

"The world has been apalled by the carnage in Qana, the bombing of ambulances and massive loss of civilian life and infrastructure. The ceasefire should be continued until peacekeeping forces are in place," Senator Brown said.
