French President Emmanuel Macron called for the creation of a state of Palestine as the only way to resolve the current crisis in West Asia.

Iran PressEurope: In a primetime TV address on Thursday, Macron said that the only way to resolve the current crisis in the Middle East was by providing security guarantees for Israel along with the creation of a state of Palestine.

Macron called on the French people to remain united.

"Let us not, through illusion or calculation, add national divisions to international divisions, and let us not give in to any form of hatred", said Macron, adding that the number of French people killed in the occupied territories had risen to 13.

Shortly before Macron's speech, the French police force suppressed the pro-Palestinian demonstration in the city of Lyon. Police in Toulouse also responded to a demonstration in support of Palestinians, cracking down on protests.
