Von der Leyen welcomes Gaza truce extension

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen welcomed in a written statement on Monday the agreement on a two-day truce extension between Hamas and Israel and called on Hamas militants to release all hostages.

She noted that the European Commission organized an air bridge that includes 20 flights carrying nearly 900 tons of humanitarian aid to Gaza, adding that 4 more flights are scheduled for this week.

Von der Leyen concluded by saying that this deal "extends this window of hope," and thanked Qatar, Egypt, and the United States for the efforts put in reaching this agreement.
