Knesset Speaker Amir Ohana visits the heads of France’s Senate and National Assembly in Paris.

Yael Braun-Pivet, French National Assembly President, writes afterward on X that “we must protect civilian populations, avoid a regional conflagration and achieve a peaceful solution, for the benefit of all.”

She also says the two discussed freeing the hostages, a potential ceasefire and humanitarian aid for Gazans.

After meeting with Senate President Gerard Larcher, Ohana tweets that “six months of war have only hardened our resolve to destroy Hamas, silence Iran’s proxies & reunite the hostages with their families.”
