Jeff Merkley: "I am calling for a ceasefire'' [View all]

Merkley, who represents Oregon, in a post on X said: “I am calling for a ceasefire – a cessation of hostilities by both sides”.

“To endure, the ceasefire and the following negotiations must accomplish other essential objectives, including the release of all hostages and a massive influx of humanitarian aid,” he said.
