Pakistan calls Israeli bombing of Gaza ‘genocide’ Pakistan’s caretaker government Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jilani has condemned Israeli bombing of besieged Gaza. He termed the destruction as ‘genocide’.
Jilani said, ‘It is a human rights crisis. This is a situation that amounts to genocide. This is essentially a genocide by Israel against the Palestinian people.’
He also said that Pakistan’s position on Palestinians has remained the same for years. During this time, he called on the Israelis to obey the UN resolutions and other international laws regarding the Palestinians. The UN resolution recognized the right of Palestinians to self-determination.Clarifying Pakistan’s position, he said, “Any attempt to equate aggressor Israel with the struggle of Palestinians is unacceptable to us.”
Pakistan does not recognize Israel as a state. And historically they have said that the occupied Palestinian territories must be vacated in line with the UN proposal for a two-state solution.It should be noted that there are protests around the world against Israel’s attack on Gaza. 2 thousand 750 Palestinians have been killed so far in this ongoing attack.
