This “brutal aggression shows the Israeli army’s arrogance and an extension of a racist colonial mentality that treats the occupied Palestinian territory as a training ground and the Palestinian citizen as a target for shooting,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The Foreign Ministry warned that the occupying power determines the targets of its attacks without international accountability.
Israel adopted the preventive war approach to wipe out any danger, even if it is theoretical or not yet true, the statement criticized.
For his part, the secretary general of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Hussein al-Sheikh, questioned the military operation by Tel Aviv’s troops against “civilians, children and infrastructure” in Gaza.
We call on the international community to intervene to provide protection to our people”, stressed the politician, who thanked Egypt for its mediation to stop the offensive.
The president of the Palestinian Supreme Court, Mahmoud Al-Habbash, expressed himself in similar terms.
All words and phrases are not enough to express the anger that resides in the hearts of the Palestinians and free peoples of the world over this barbaric aggression, he wrote on Twitter.
The Israeli army yesterday began shelling suspected targets of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which responded with barrages of rockets against territory in the neighboring nation.
