Popular Front of India Chairman E Abubacker in a statement has strongly condemned the brutal violence unleashed by Israeli army on unharmed Palestinians in Gaza who assembled near the fence with Israel.
“Innocent Palestinians are being massacred and their lands stolen on a daily basis while America continues to support Israel financially and militarily over the past many decades. Around 60 people have died and 2000 wounded including women and children in Israeli firing at Palestinian people who gathered to protest near the fence with Israel in Gaza. As usual, this time too Israel has justified carnage by calling it “self defense” even though there was no casualty on Israeli side from the protesters. In fact, Israel is proving that it does not even tolerate Palestinian people protesting when they are being made to live like in an open prison with Israel controlling and shrinking all their spaces from all sides.”
E Abubacker has also condemned American decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. “This is yet another shameful betrayal of Palestinians, especially when the country has always presented itself as the mediator of the peace talks between Israel and Palestine. It can only be viewed as an open display of disregard for international law and UN resolutions. It will further deteriorate already volatile situation in the region.”
“We urge UN and international community to come against Israeli crimes and human rights violations and call upon world countries to take necessary steps to restore the rights and dignity of Palestinian people.”
