Dhaka condemns Israeli violence against Palestinians

Bangladesh has strongly condemned the violence against Palestinians and killing of 10 Palestinians, including children and elderly people, by the Israeli occupation forces in Jenin refugee camp.

The massacre led to the wounding of dozens and storming of Jenin Hospital as well as the demolition of facilities in the refugee camp on Thursday.

Bangladesh has expressed deep concern over the repeated violations and disregard of basic civil norms, international human rights laws and international accords by the Israeli forces, which has invoked sympathy of millions of oppressed people around the world, said a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Bangladesh denounces the policies adopted by the Israeli occupation forces and continued attacks on the city of Jerusalem and the Holy sites including the Al Aqsa Mosque and urges the international community to take sustained measures to end such kind of violent attacks, and demolition of houses and hindering the medical treatment to the wounded civilians and to end the heinous actions in the occupied territories.

Bangladesh firmly supports the inalienable rights of the people of Palestine for a sovereign and independent homeland and reaffirms its position in favour of establishing an independent state of Palestine on the basis of two-state solution.

Bangladesh has also reiterated its position that a lasting solution to the Palestine issue would be possible only with the engagement of both sides in cordial dialogue and calls upon all parties to work towards this end.
