CMF statement on the Israel/Gaza conflict

CMF is deeply concerned by the tragic death and injury of thousands of civilians occurring in the Israel/Gaza conflict, including many children. We are also extremely concerned by the disruption of healthcare infrastructure and humanitarian supplies and by the number of medical and aid personnel being detained.

We recognise the deep complexities and long history of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. We condemn both the actions of Hamas on 7 October 2023 and the disproportionate harm to civilians that Israel's ensuing military response has caused.

CMF urges all who have influence to work together urgently to:

  • Halt the tragic injuries and loss of life amongst civilians, especially children.
  • Protect healthcare and aid workers and health facilities.
  • Ensure full access to healthcare and humanitarian aid.
  • Seek the safe return of all taken hostage on 7 October.
  • Seek just short-term and long-term political solutions to the ongoing conflict, including practical support for the redevelopment of Gaza.

Whilst political solutions seem almost impossible in human terms, CMF believes we have a sovereign God who can direct the affairs of nations and individuals. We earnestly pray for his intervention to achieve just solutions to this long-standing, bitter conflict.
