Malala Urges ‘Immediate’ Ceasefire Following Israel’s Attack on UN School in Gaza

‘Immediate’ Ceasefire

Pakistani girls’ education activist and youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Malala Yousafzai, has reiterated her call for an “immediate” ceasefire in Gaza following the recent Israeli attack on a United Nations school hosting displaced Palestinians.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, Yousafzai condemned the Israeli military’s bombardment of another UN school, which resulted in the deaths of dozens, including children.

The UN-run school, located in central Gaza’s Nuseirat camp, was targeted by Israeli forces, leading to the tragic deaths of at least 40 individuals, predominantly women and children, according to local government officials, as reported by Al Jazeera.

Expressing her horror and dismay, Yousafzai wrote on X, “I’m horrified that Israel has bombed yet another school in Gaza, where thousands of civilians were sheltering. Schools should never be targets. I reiterate my call for an immediate ceasefire — we cannot have any more innocent lives lost.”

During a recent interview with Vogue, Yousafzai highlighted the devastating situation in Gaza, particularly after Israel’s horrific massacre of Palestinians in Rafah.

She remarked, “This is such a difficult time right now, especially because of what’s happening in Gaza, and especially this week, what we saw in Rafah.

It is heartbreaking and terrifying to have witnessed these moments. People are so angry and can’t believe this could happen right in front of our eyes.”

The Nobel laureate emphasized the unimaginable atrocities and pain that Palestinians in Gaza are enduring, stating that she struggles to even fathom their suffering.

In a bid to support Palestinian students, Yousafzai announced a new scholarship initiative at the University of Oxford.

Additionally, she underscored the Malala Fund’s ongoing commitment to Palestine, which includes a $300,000 allocation for Palestinian-led aid collectives and humanitarian efforts.

The escalating violence in Gaza has led to catastrophic loss of life. According to the Palestinian health ministry, more than 37,181 Palestinians have been killed, and 88,309 others injured since October 7 due to Israel’s mass genocidal attacks.

Yousafzai’s urgent plea for a ceasefire reflects a broader call for peace and the protection of innocent civilians caught in the conflict.

Her advocacy underscores the critical need for international intervention and humanitarian support to address the dire situation in Gaza.
