With more than 130 killed in the past five days Workers Party President, Ted Tynan, has condemned the “…ongoing murderous Israeli aggression against Gaza and police collusion with mobs attacking Arab homes in Israel”.
“The grossly disproportionate military force used by Israeli armed forces by air, land and sea, which has already killed 119 Palestinians in Gaza, including 27 children, is forcing Gaza residents to flee their homes and causing immense suffering to an area already afflicted by Israeli atrocities” Cllr Tynan said
“The current aggression is part of the sustained campaign to annex Palestinian territories of the West Bank and to continue the Israeli occupation on Palestinian territory”, he said.
“It is vital that we stand in solidarity with Palestine. Israel must be held accountable for its actions and on behalf of the the Workers Party I am calling for immediate action to stop these crimes against humanity, including the expulsion of the Israeli Ambassadors from London and Dublin”
There must be an immediate embargo on weapons and military technologies sold to and used by Israeli armed forces which facilitate these crimes against the Palestinian people.”, Cllr Tynan concluded
