ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Tuesday condemned in strongest terms the recent killing of innocent Palestinian civilians including women and children by Israeli forces.”Pakistan believes that the Israeli violence and indiscriminate killing of innocent Palestinian civilians will further deteriorate the situation in Middle East and make a peaceful solution of Palestine issue further elusive,” the Foreign Office said.
“Pakistan has always extended unequivocal and unreserved support for Palestinian cause. Pakistan believes that right to self – determination is an inalienable right of people of Palestine.”The ministry also called upon international community to bring about a cessation of unilateral Israeli strikes and killing of innocent Palestinians by Israeli forces. Violent clashes have increased in frequency since Israeli security forces began to crackdown on Palestinian worshippers at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem last month.
So far, 29 Palestinians have been killed and at least 1,990 others have been injured, according to the Palestinian Authority s health ministry, and rights groups have accused Israeli forces of using excessive force.
