The country’s Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto has proposed to take some of the injured Gaza residents to Indonesia for medical treatment and to deploy Indonesian peacekeepers in the war-torn Gaza.

According to The Jakarta Post, he made this proposal on behalf of Indonesian President Joko Widodo at the ‘Call for Action: Urgent Humanitarian Response for Gaza’ conference in Jordan last Monday.

According to the report, these two proposals are more effective than the repeated condemnation of Israel for attacking Gaza. Because Indonesia is a supporter of Palestinian independence and wants a two-state solution to end the decades-long conflict in the Middle East.

Prabowo Subianto, who will succeed Joko Widodo as the President of Indonesia in October, has made this proposal effective at such a time.

Earlier this year, 146 out of 193 members of the UN General Assembly voted in favor of Palestine joining the UN.

King Abdullah of Jordan, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres focused on increasing the international community’s response to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza at last week’s conference.
