Malaysia's Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim has announced the country's readiness to deploy peacekeeping forces to ensure a ceasefire in Gaza amid ongoing Israeli hostilities.

In a statement released yesterday, Anwar mentioned a phone conversation with Indonesia's President-elect Prabowo Subianto, who will assume office in October.

During their discussion, the leaders addressed the attacks on Palestine and expressed their willingness to send peacekeeping troops to Gaza in collaboration with Indonesia, pending a request from the United Nations.

Anwar highlighted the importance of strengthening bilateral cooperation and enhancing ties within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

This announcement follows Prabowo's declaration in June of Indonesia's readiness to dispatch peacekeeping forces to ensure a ceasefire in Gaza.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health reported yesterday that the death toll in Gaza has risen to 37,925, with 87,141 injured since the conflict escalated on October 7.

In the past 24 hours alone, Israeli airstrikes have killed 25 people and injured 81 others, according to the ministry's daily report.
