Pakistan on Saturday strongly condemned the latest Israeli airstrikes on Gaza that resulted in the deaths of at least 10 Palestinians.
“Martyrdom of 10 Palestinians including a five-year-old girl in Gaza is latest act of Israeli terrorism. If impunity and barbarism had a face, it would have been that of Israel, which has targeted Palestinians without any care for consequences. Pakistan strongly condemns Israeli airstrikes,” Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said in a tweet.
Condemning the attacks, the foreign office said: “The latest spate of aggression is typical of the Israeli atrocities, illegal actions and indiscriminate use of force against innocent Palestinians over the decades in complete defiance of international human rights and humanitarian laws.”
“We renew our call for a viable, independent and contiguous Palestinian State, with pre-1967 borders, and Al Quds Al Sharif as its capital being the only just, comprehensive and lasting solution of the Palestinian question, in accordance with the relevant United Nations and OIC [Organisation of Islamic Cooperation] resolutions,” it added.
