China’s Xi urges release of ‘detainees,’ immediate ceasefire in Israel-Hamas war

China’s Xi Jinping calls for an “immediate” ceasefire between Israel and Hamas and the release of “civilian detainees,” Beijing’s state media says, as the Chinese leader addresses a virtual summit of fellow BRICS leaders.

“All parties in the conflicts should immediately cease fire and hostilities, stop all violence and attacks targeting civilians, and release civilian detainees to avoid more loss of lives and suffering,” Xi says, according to the Xinhua news agency.
