The Senate has asked the federal government to collaborate with the United Nations and other international leaders to achieve an urgent cease-fire in the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The Upper House also encouraged the federal government to help promote a two-state solution to stop the bloodshed, which has killed thousands of people, including women, children, and aid workers.

The resolutions were passed in response to a motion introduced by Senator Adamu Aliero (PDP, Kebbi) and co-sponsored by 43 other senators.

Aliero described the war's casualty counts as horrifying, warning that if it wasn't stopped immediately, it may lead to World War III.

Senators Barau Jibrin (Kano), Enyinaya Abaribe (Abia), and Sani Musa (Niger) also supported the discussion.

Senators from both parties condemned the killings, urging for an immediate halt to the atrocities in order to save endangered lives and property.
