Ibrahim Lateef, one of the young Nigerian talents in Nollywood and a final year history student of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ife, has commented on the killings going on between Israel and Palestine.
Lateef, in an interview with Legit.ng, sued for peace between the two countries, urging the international community to address the crisis from different declarations that had earlier been made that ceded the Gaza stripe to Israel.

Aljazeera also reported that more than 13,000 people have been injured, and the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said on Saturday, October 21, that the complete siege on Gaza would not stop until unless Israel hostages are free.
Addressing policies and declarations, including Balfour of 1917 would solve Israel Gaza war
Reacting to the crisis in the Middle East, the actor told Legit.ng that different policies and declarations that fuel the crisis between the two countries should be address, including the Balfour Declaration.
"Many policies and declarations from the 1800s and before that period fueled this war we see between Palestine and Israeli today. So, while we advocate for peace to reign, we need to tell the world how germane it is to checkmate the policies and declarations surrounding the cause of the war. Balfour declaration is one of them."
Balfour declaration is a public statement the British Government issued during the first world war in 1917 where the English announced its support for the establishment of a "national home for the Jewish people" in Palestine.
