The whole world is watching with anxiety, horror and disgust the escalation of attacks in the Gaza Strip. The State of Israel has now committed unprecedented atrocities, culminating in yesterday’s bombing of the Al-Ahly Hospital.
The attack on the hospital, which caused the deaths of hundreds of civilian patients and workers, the majority of whom were women and children, is an unprecedented criminal act in the history of the world!
Israel and its allies, and those whose silence and inaction support the attacks, claim that Israel’s unprecedented aggression stems from the ‘right to defence’.
Bombing hospitals is not “self-defence”. It is a war crime. It is a crime against humanity.
Yesterday’s attack proves that Israel and its allies have no intention of de-escalating the situation, which heightens our concerns about the expansion of the war in the region.
Representing 105 million workers, the WFTU calls on the international community to cease its silence in support of Israeli atrocities, and to intervene meaningfully to end the attacks in Palestine.
The WFTU calls on its affiliates and friends, every worker who wants peace, to strengthen the anti-war movement that demands the immediate end to the war and the immediate end to the occupation of Palestine, by participating in the solidarity mobilizations that are being organized these days in every corner of the world.
SOLIDARITY WITH THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE!
NO TO IMPERIALIST HYPOCRISY!
A JUST AND PEACEFUL SOLUTION TO THE PALESTINIAN CAUSE!
