MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey issued a proclamation Thursday after the city council overrode his veto of the ceasefire resolution for the Israel-Hamas war.
The Minneapolis City Council on Jan. 23 passed the symbolic resolution in a 9-3 vote, which called for a permanent ceasefire, humanitarian aid, an end to United States military funding to Israel, and the release of hostages.
However, during a city council meeting on Feb. 8, council members voted 9-3 again to overturn the mayor’s veto, which was the minimum number of votes needed.
Following the vote, Mayor Frey issued a ceasefire proclamation that "stands in stark contrast with the council’s resolution, which is one-sided and further divides our city and alienates Jewish residents," wrote the mayor’s office in a press release.
The mayor stressed he supports a ceasefire, the need for humanitarian aid, and a two-state solution, among other points.
