Press Release Regarding The Attacks Perpetrated By Israel Against Gaza , 30.07.2014

No: 256, 30 July 2014

We regret that Israel continues and intensifies its attacks against Gaza despite all the calls and warnings of the international community. Israel's targeting of the only power plant in Gaza, UNRWA schools, hospitals and mosques is typical in demonstrating its unlimited aggression. We strongly condemn these attacks which caused the death of innocent Palestinians including many women and children, wish God's mercy upon those who lost their lives, convey our condolences to their families and the brotherly people of Palestine, and wish a speedy recovery to the wounded.

Israel must immediately stop these attacks which constitute a serious crime against humanity, causing the death of more than 1,200 Palestinians as well as the injury of thousands more, most of whom were civilians.
