The Nigerian Senate on Tuesday, November 7 urged the Federal Government to work with the United Nations and other countries of the world to ensure an immediate ceasefire in the ongoing Israeli-Palestine war and also  facilitate a two-state solution to end the conflict, which has left thousands, including women, children, and aid workers, dead.

The resolutions followed a motion sponsored by Senator Adamu Aliero (PDP, Kebbi) and co-sponsored by 43 others.

Aliero said if the war does not end immediately, it might lead to World War III.
