صدر مملکت کا رمضان میں قابض اسرائیلی فوج کی جانب سے مسجد اقصیٰ پر متشدد حملوں پر اظہارِ تشویش
معصوم بچوں اور فلسطینیوں کے قتل پر آپکے پاکستانی بہن بھائی آپکے دکھ میں برابر کے شریک ہیں، خط pic.twitter.com/LTb1GWeVfi
The letter reads, “Your Pakistani brothers and sisters, including myself, share your pain and distress caused by Israel's indiscriminate killing of innocent Palestinians, including children, in Gaza. We express our profound sympathies and condolences for the victims of these attacks and pray for speedy recovery of the injured.”
Pakistan strongly condemned Israel's violence and illegal actions against Palestinians that are against humanitarian norms, human rights and international law.
Alvi also reaffirmed Pakistan's abiding support for a just settlement of the Palestine issue in accordance with the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions and for establishment of an independent, viable, and contiguous Palestinian State, with pre-1967 borders, with Al Quds Al Sharif as its capital.
Pakistani President also prayed for the blessings of Allah Almighty for Mehmood Abbas and the people of Palestine.
In a latest, Israeli fighter jets have attacked high-rise buildings and other targets in the Gaza Strip as Palestinians in the besieged enclave woke up on Thursday to mark the Eid al-Fitr religious holiday under relentless aerial bombardment.
Since the Israeli offensive began late on Monday, Gaza’s health ministry says at least 69 people, including 17 children, have been killed. More than 390 others have been wounded.
