Statement issued by the Embassy of the State of Palestine to South Africa on the iniquitous Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip


Pretoria – 9 July 2014

On Tuesday, 8 July 2014, Israel began its aggression on the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. So far at least 27 Palestinians, including 6 children, have been martyred and more than 200 injured in the Israeli airstrikes. Dozens of civilian homes have also been demolished in these strikes. Israel also massacred 7 Palestinians from the Kawarae family in the city of Khan Yunis. The Israeli extremist, blood-thirsty government responded to this massacre by brushing it aside as insignificant and irrelevant. The Israeli Cabinet has authorised the calling of 40,000 army reservists ahead of a possible ground offensive. This is in addition to the thousands of soldiers that have already been deployed around the parameter of Gaza.
This renewed violence against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip came following Israel’s murder of 9 Palestinians in more than 60 airstrikes struck on the Gaza Strip on Monday. This is in addition to the violence inflicted on the Palestinians in the West Bank with mass arrests of about 500 Palestinians in the past three weeks, the killing and injuring of dozens of Palestinians and giving protection to the extremist illegal Israeli settlers to commit crimes against the Palestinians, such as the murder of the child Mohammed Abu Khdier who was kidnapped in Jerusalem, tortured and burnt alive.
The Israeli aggression against the large civilian population in Gaza is a war crime that should not be ignored by the international community. Such an arrogant carefree attitude is the norm with Israel, who is accustomed to constantly committing war crimes against the Palestinians with little condemnation and no consequences internationally. The Palestinian people urge that this stop and that the extremist Israeli leaders be trialled in the international court of justice as war criminals.
The Embassy of the State of Palestine to South Africa demands that the international community condemn this iniquitous war and interfere to stop the Israeli aggression in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and Jerusalem.
The Palestinian leadership once again requests that the UN sends out international forces to help protect the Palestinian people against the Israeli brutality.
The Embassy of the State of Palestine applauds and highly appreciates the position of the South African government in support of the Palestinian people and their struggle to achieve independence and statehood with East Jerusalem as its capital. The embassy also encourages further solidarity from the people of South Africa and the solidarity committees that stand with the Palestinian people during these hard times.
