ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan has strongly condemned Israel’s brutal attack on the city and camp of Jenin in the State of Palestine, killing several innocent Palestinians including an elderly woman and injuring at least 20 others.
“Pakistan denounces the spate of reprehensible, cold blooded and murderous attacks that have already killed 30 Palestinians this month,” said a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad on Friday.
The statement said that Pakistan calls upon the international community to assume its responsibility in bringing these illegal incursions and actions by the Israeli occupation forces to a halt and ensuring adequate protection of the human rights of the Palestinian people.
It further said that Pakistan reiterates its strong and unwavering support to the legitimate struggle of the Palestinian people for full realization of their fundamental rights- including the right to self- determination.
“Government and the people of Pakistan extend sincere and heartfelt condolences to the families of victims and best wishes for full and swift recovery of the injured in this brutal attack,” the statement stated.
It added that Pakistan renews its call for a viable, independent and contiguous Palestinian State, with pre-1967 borders and Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital, in accordance with the relevant United Nations and OIC resolutions.
