“Israel bears full responsibility for the grave escalation it instigated in the Gaza Strip and for the wanton destruction and terror it has caused. Two million Palestinians who have suffered from Israel’s illegal siege for the past twelve years are being targeted and have nowhere to seek shelter. Israel’s deliberate targeting of civilian structures, including residential buildings and a TV station, is a war crime, and Israel must face consequences for its actions. The right-wing Israeli government has been emboldened by the international community’s failure to enforce accountability. We call on all States to shoulder their legal and moral responsibilities by confronting Israeli aggression and ensuring protection for the Palestinian civilian population. The Palestinian leadership is committed to defending our people and their rights to live in peace, security, and freedom using all available diplomatic and legal tools. The Palestinian leadership will also continue its serious efforts with the help of Egypt and other concerned parties to achieve reconciliation and unity.”
