As the fragile 12-hour ceasefire between Hamas and Israel has come into effect earlier this morning, approximately 1100 people have been brutally killed by the Israeli attacks onto the civilian population in Gaza. The horrendous images on TV and social networks show the graphic mutilation of innocent children’s bodies and devastation to people’s lives and homes.
In the strongest possible language, we condemn the attacks and bloodshed on innocent Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. We send our condolences to Gaza. Every family has been affected either by either injuries or death of family members, or destruction to homes and property. No one has been untouched.
We believe that only justice leads to peace. We call on Israel to comply with international law by ending its occupation of Gaza and the West Bank - including Jerusalem. Until this is achieved, we kindly ask you to comply with the Palestinian civil society call to action including via boycotts, divestment, and sanctions. See: bdsmovement.net
