ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said that we are disappointed that after a brief pause, Israel has restarted bombing the Palestinian people, adding that the temporary pause offered a crucial respite to the suffering people of Gaza and allowed exchange of prisoners.
“We are deeply concerned at the escalating Israeli aggression against the West Bank and the escalation of hostile acts against the Palestinian population,” said the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Mumtaz Zahra Baloch at her weekly media briefing in Islamabad on Friday.
“We strongly condemn the Israeli raid in the Jenin refugee camp and acts of violence and repression against the returning prisoners and their families,” she said.
The Spokesperson said that Pakistan reiterates its call for a durable and sustained ceasefire to enable supply of extensive and robust humanitarian assistance; urgent medical aid to the injured; and shelter to those who have been displaced as a result of indiscriminate and inhumane bombing campaign by Israeli occupation forces.
Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said that the international community should take immediate and decisive steps to bring an end to Israel’s campaign of terror against the Palestinian civilians.
The Foreign Office Spokesperson said that Pakistan supports the call for a comprehensive investigation into attacks against medical facilities, schools, mosques, churches, residential buildings and water facilities and urges full accountability for the war crimes being perpetrated in occupied Palestine.
“We reaffirm our support for our Palestinian brothers and sisters in this time of great ordeal and trauma for the Palestinian people,” she said.
