Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that he as premier and the Pakistani nation are standing with the people of Palestine and Gaza, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

In a tweet uploaded on Wednesday, Imran Khan shared a quote of world-renowned media scholar, linguistic and dissident Noam Chomsky, “You take my water, burn my olive trees, destroy my house, take my job, steal my land, imprison my father, kill my mother, bombard my country, starve us all, humiliate us all but I am to blame: I shot a rocket back.”

Earlier, the Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) strongly condemned the airstrikes by Israel on Gaza that resulted in deaths and injuries to so many innocent Palestinians, including children. 

In a latest, Palestinian death toll reached at 36 including 10 children after Israel military continued bombing on Gaza strip including Tower residential building.
