By Manal Abdel Fattah

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken issued a statement on the occasion of Ramadan in which he spoke about the situation in the Gaza Strip.

The US Secretary of State said: Ramadan Kareem to more than 1.8 billion Muslims around the world. Ramadan, a month of peace, has come at a time of conflict and pain for many Muslim communities, including the Uighurs in Xinjiang, the Rohingya in Burma and Bangladesh, and the Palestinians in Gaza.

He added: “Muslims around the world feel this pain keenly, which is why Ramadan looks different this year. The humanitarian situation in Gaza is heartbreaking. While we provide additional aid to Gaza, we will continue to work non-stop to achieve an immediate and sustainable six-week ceasefire on “At least as part of the hostage release deal.”
He added: “We will also continue to pursue a two-state solution to ensure that Palestinians and Israelis share equal measures of freedom, dignity, security, and prosperity. Peace is possible, it is necessary, and it is urgent.”
He continued, “Many of our American citizens – including American diplomats – will celebrate Ramadan this year. For us, it is an occasion to recognize the role that religious diversity plays in strengthening our country and the importance of freedom of religion or belief at home and abroad. The United States remains committed to ensuring that this extends Freedom to everyone around the world. To those who celebrate Ramadan.”
