PGPF Condemns Current Cruelty Of The Zionist Regime Against Palestinians In Gaza

KUALA LUMPUR, July 16 (Bernama) -- The Perdana Global Peace Foundation (PGPF) strongly comdemns the current cruelty of the Zionist regime against the Palestinians in Gaza.

"We have to increase global pressure to stop the Genocide in Gaza. This on-going act of genocide cannot remain unpunished by the world community," PGPF said in a statement.

The foundation said that the Israeli airstrikes which began on July 9 had so far resulted in 192 Palestinians killed and over 1,410 injured, over 22,240 attacks and 585 houses as well as eight mosques destroyed.

"Israel continues to commit multiple violations of UN resolutions regarding Palestine as well as the Geneva Conventions and enforcement of violations remains mere rhetoric," it said, stressing that the world community has not condemned Israel enough for their militant aggression.

With this in mind, the PGPF said it also regrets that the community in the Asean region has not galvanised its voice to show solidarity with the people of Gaza to demand for an immediate halt to the carnage.

"On the other hand, it is most encouraging to see this solidarity displayed in public rallies in the UK, Europe and America," it added.

The PGPF is also deeply disappointed by the United Nations (UN) choice of remaining silent on this issue, pointing out that "Israel's on-going brutality is escalating beyond human comprehension."

The PGPF said it is concerned that this latest onslaught cum massacre by Israelis will be on a much larger scale compared to the military operation back in 2008.

It said that currently there are severe restrictions to medical supplies and aid into Gaza at the Rafah border imposed by the Egyptian authorities. Hospitals are also running at over capacity to meet the increasing number of casualties.

"It is deeply immoral as well as absurdly counterproductive towards peace. The denial of human rights for the Palestinians must end," the statement added.

PGPF, an anti-war movement, aims to initiate a global forum that encourages dialogue between different parties in the hope that the forum would build understanding, foster a love for peace and instil the resolution to end war.
