HDP: We condemn the attacks on Gaza
Feleknas Uca and Hişyar Özsoy, HDP Foreign Relations Commission Co-spokespersons, strongly condemn the airstrikes carried out by the Israeli government against the Gaza Strip.
Feleknas Uca and Hişyar Özsoy, HDP Foreign Relations Commission Co-spokespersons, issued a statement to strongly condemn the airstrikes carried out by the Israeli government against the Gaza Strip.
The statement said: “Many civilians, including children, lost their lives in these attacks. We express our condolences to the families of those who lost their lives and a speedy recovery to the injured.
We also find the raid on Masjid al-Aqsa, accompanied by the Israeli police, unacceptable. This raid is a result of the decision by an Israeli court in May 2022 that allowed Jewish settlers to perform their religious rituals in the courtyard of Masjid al-Aqsa.”
The statement added: “This raid on Masjid al-Aqsa, which was accepted and reclaimed as a holy place of worship by the Muslim peoples, and the court decision before it will not only deepen the conflicts between Israel and Palestine, but will also feed religious fanaticism by deepening the conflicts between religions.”
The HDP called “on all international institutions, especially the United Nations Security Council, to take immediate action so that the oppression of the Palestinian people for almost a century ends. Although a ceasefire has been reached, there is no guarantee that such attacks will not occur again. Similar ceasefires were declared many times in the past, but the wars and conflicts in which civilians were killed each time unfortunately continued.
We once again invite the Israeli government to end its attacks on the Palestinian people and to resolve the existing problems through peaceful and political means.”
