Israel’s Aggression on Palestine

Global action is required to restore the rights of the Palestinian people.

 

Even as the ceasefire has been announced on 20 May, more than 220 Palestinians, including 63 children, have lost their lives; over 1,500 of them injured in Israel’s latest round of bombing on Gaza. Palestinians elsewhere in the occupied territories of West Bank and East Jerusalem and inside Israel too are facing Israel’s increased aggression. The international community has once again failed to come to a consensus and put a united front against such blatant violations of basic human rights of Palestinians by the occupier Israel.

Israeli air strikes have targeted civilian residential areas and infrastructure, razing homes and hospitals alike. It has also attacked buildings that house international media organisations and COVID-19 testing laboratories. All this in the name of “fighting against terrorism” and “right to self-defence.” Anyone who has followed the trajectory of the Israel–Palestine conflict, knows that Israeli claims form a part of the larger agenda to blame Palestinians, victims of its decades-long occupation and persecution.
