Farooq condemns fresh Israeli offensive in Rafah

Farooq condemns fresh Israeli offensive in Rafah

Srinagar, May 29 (UNI) National Conference President and Member of Parliament Farooq Abdullah on Wednesday condemned Israel's offensive in the southern Gaza city of Rafah, resulting in multiple casualties.
"No condemnation is enough for the massacre being carried out by the Israeli army in Rafah," Farooq said in a statement here today.
He said such brute aggression and genocidal acts targeted against civilians, including children, are in gross violation of international humanitarian law.
“Israel should heed the overwhelming calls of the international community to cease its attacks on innocent people in Gaza, particularly in Rafah," the former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister said.
He impressed upon the Government of India to show steadfast dedication to the cause of Palestine by extending humanitarian assistance to the war-torn people there.
"India has always stood with the people of Palestine and now is the time to do it. By doing so, India will not only uphold its moral obligations but will also reinforce its status as a beacon of hope and solidarity in the global community," he said.
Farooq said that New Delhi should keep its commitments and ensure that the aggression against the people of Gaza ceases.
