In an official statement, Dr. Majed bin Mohammed al-Ansari, the official spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, emphasized Qatar's unwavering stance of ending the conflict in Gaza promptly. Stressing the need to halt the violence to safeguard civilians and their properties, Qatar appreciates American efforts aimed at de-escalation. 

During the weekly press briefing, the spokesperson reiterated Qatar's focus on compelling all involved parties to stop the war, end the bloodshed, protect civilians and their assets, and facilitate unrestrained humanitarian aid delivery to Gaza. Dr. Al-Ansari warned against further displacement of the Palestinian people, underscoring that such actions lack legitimacy under international laws. 

Despite challenges such as the recent events in Lebanon involving Saleh Al Arouri and ongoing Gaza massacres complicating negotiations, Qatar remains actively engaged in mediating efforts and sustaining communications with involved parties. 

Emphasizing Qatar's clear priorities from the onset of the conflict, the spokesperson reaffirmed the opportunity to prevent a larger regional conflict by ending current aggression and addressing pending issues promptly. 

Dr. Al-Ansari highlighted the consensus among regional entities on the imperative need to stop the conflict and repeat the joint stance regarding the pursuit of comprehensive peace in the region. 

Additionally, the spokesperson announced the forthcoming participation of Qatar's Prime Minister and the Minister of Foreign Affairs at the World Economic Forum in Davos, emphasizing Qatar's ongoing humanitarian aid efforts for Gaza.

The statement also outlined Qatar's significant aid contribution to Gaza, including the recent airlift of food aid and the evacuation of individuals in need of medical assistance in Qatar. 

Lastly, Dr. Al-Ansari mentioned high-level diplomatic engagements, including meetings with the U.S Secretary of state, the President of the UAE, the Foreign Minster of Iran and the Lebanese Caretaker Prime Minister, focusing on the urgency of an immediate ceasefire and the protection of civilians amidst escalating tensions in Gaza and the occupied Palestinian territories.
