UN, OIC Need To Quickly Send Humanitarian Aid To Gaza - Najib
In a radio broadcast of the Prime Minister denouncing the Israeli air strikes on Gaza on the www.1malaysia.com.my blog today, the Prime Minister said Malaysia condemned the attacks by Israeli forces on the territory.
He said the cruelty of the Zionist regime against the Palestinians in Gaza was not only being opposed by Muslims but also people who hold to the principles of humanitarianism.
To date, the media reported at least 81 Palestinians were killed while hundreds more were injured by incessant air strikes by the Israeli regime on Gaza.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was reported as saying the regime had mobilised 40,000 troops to launch a ground attack against Gaza in the operation code named Operation Protective Edge.
Najib said Malaysia has not given up hopes on fighting for the rights of Palestinian people and would give undivided support to all efforts to end the conflict which has gone on for a long time in Gaza.
However, he said, all efforts would not be complete without faith.
"As such, I called on Muslims to carry out our prayers together for the Palestinian people," the Prime Minister said.
