PM Lee calls on Singaporeans to keep Gaza victims in 'thoughts and prayers'

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has called on Singaporeans to keep victims of the ongoing conflict in Gaza in their "thoughts and prayers" and to continue supporting fund-raising initiatives for humanitarian assistance. 

In a facebook post today, Mr Lee said that while the Middle East is far away, Singaporeans still empathise with the pain and suffering of the Palestinian people, because of our common humanity. 

He said there is no easy solution to this, but also noted that there is no future in this endless cycle of violence and retribution. 

Mr Lee said a lasting solution must begin with restraint and an end to violence, by both sides. 

He hopes all parties will work together to end this latest episode of violence.
