ELNET-Italy CEO publishes op-ed on the Israeli hostages held by Hamas
ELNET is greatly heartened at the prospect of the release of some of the hostages, and extends its support to the families during this time. The international community must remain steadfast in demanding the return of all of the hostages, and we call on European leaders to keep this matter at the top of the global agenda.
Writing in il Giornale, leading Italian journalist Francesco Giubilei writes about visit at Israel’s Sourasky Medical Center – Ichilov Hospital after the Hamas massacre of October 7th.
ELNET is deeply concerned by President Macron’s call for a ceasefire in the war between Israel and Hamas. A ceasefire would enable Hamas to regroup and endanger Israeli forces as well as the hostages. It would not impact the humanitarian aid that is being delivered daily to the civilian population of Gaza.
ELNET has initiated an emergency program to bring European policymakers and opinion leaders to Israel on solidarity missions to hear first-hand testimonies and witness the carnage for themselves, and share back home the truth about they saw. This solidarity mission, the fourth one since the Hamas massacre, included 16 members of European parliaments.
ELNET’s Forum of Strategic Dialogue held the first Strategic Dialogue between the Israel and the E3 countries – UK, Germany, and France
