The Embassy of The State Of Palestine in Harare condemns in the strongest terms the heinous crimes committed by the Israeli Apartheid occupation army against its people in the Gaza Strip.
The crimes have led to the death of 12 martyrs which includes four children, four women and unarmed civilians in addition of dozens of seriously injured. The overnight series of Israeli airstrikes targeted on several homes and residential buildings ushered in a new aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip.
The Israeli apartheid government is exporting its domestic crises to the Palestinian arena at the expense of the rights of the Palestinian people. Whenever the Israeli government faces domestic difficulties, it resort to escalation of its crimes to the Palestinian people.
“We hold the Israeli government fully and directly responsible for this aggression and its consequences as this is a dangerous escalation that threatens people in the Middle East,” said Ambassador Dr Tarmer Almassri (pictured).
“The latest crime is a continuity of Israel’s series of ongoing aggression on the Palestinian people, as well as an act of war . This should not be tolerated by any progressive state . The killings are the consequence of the regular resort to lethal force by Israeli apartheid security forces against Palestinians and total lack of accountability of killings of Palestinians ” added Ambassador Almassri.
“The State of Palestine therefore calls on the international community to intervene urgently to stop the aggression against our people and hold Israeli accountable for the violations and crimes that our people are subjected to . We call on the progressive peoples , governments and human rights organizations to condemn these heinous crimes and protect our people,” concluded Palestine Ambassador.
