Islamic Relief condemns violence against Palestinians
Islamic Relief is calling for a lasting solution and an end to the Israeli occupation. We strongly condemn all attacks and violence against civilians, and the sheer injustice at the heart of the matter, and are calling for an immediate end to the current escalations.
More Israeli bombing has been reported in Gaza following airstrikes since May 9 which have killed at least 31 people including six children and other civilians. In just the first quarter of this year, at least 88 Palestinians, including around 17 children, have been killed, with hundreds more Palestinians injured.
“It’s vital that the international community applies pressure to stop the crisis from escalating further. Israeli authorities must ensure that civilians and civilian infrastructure are protected from attack, in accordance with international humanitarian law.”
– Muneeb Abu-Ghazaleh, Islamic Relief Country Director in Gaza
