Bangladesh has strongly condemned the terrorist-like attacks and violence unleashed on the innocent devotees and civilians at Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

In a press statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday, Bangladesh also slammed the evictions of Palestinian families in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood and transfer of civilian population into occupied territories by the occupying Israeli forces which exposes the severe violation of humanitarian norms, human rights and international laws and accords and provoked the feelings of repressed people all over the world.   

“Bangladesh urges the international community to take sustainable measures to end such kind of terrorist-like attacks, stop confiscation of private properties in occupied territories through the policy of apartheid and the measures of terror which may be tantamount to war crimes in the occupied territories,” reads the statement.

Bangladesh reaffirms its position in favour of establishing a State of Palestine on the basis of two-state solution with the pre-1967 borders and East Jerusalem as its capital, it said and added that Bangladesh firmly supports the inalienable rights of the People of Palestine for a sovereign and independent homeland in a viable Palestine State and territorial integrity as established through various UN resolutions.

Bangladesh reiterates its steadfast position to a lasting solution to the Palestinian issue by engagement of both sides in dialogue to reach an agreement so that peace is attained for the peoples living in the area.
