The Embassy of the state of Palestine strongly condemns the barbaric aggression of the apartheid Israeli occupation army against the northern West Bank city of Jenin and its refugee camp that so far killed 5 Palestinian martyrs and more than 40 critically injured.

The Embassy of Palestine to Zimbabwe said the aggression is part of the official apartheid Israeli policy of using military force in dealing with the defenseless Palestinian people as an alternative to political solutions to the conflict.

“We hold the Israeli apartheid government fully and directly responsible for its repercussions. The Israeli army assault on the northern West Bank city of Jenin is another war crime and it will not bring security and stability to the region.

“We stress that the Palestinian people will not be divided, surrender, or raise the white flag, but will remain steadfast on their land in the face of this brutal aggression until the occupation is defeated and freedom is achieved. All these crimes committed by the occupation government and its terrorist settlers will not achieve security and stability for them unless our Palestinian people are free,” the Embassy said in a statement.

The State of Palestine’s Ambassador to Zimbabwe, HE Tamer Almassri called for decisive international action to immediately stop the aggression, urging the International Criminal Court to break its silence and start holding the Israeli war criminals accountable.

“The double standards and shameful silence of the international community regarding these Israeli crimes encourages the Israeli occupation power to go further in its crimes and flagrant violations that strengthen its occupation and apartheid system which is against international law and humanitarian law.

“We call on progressive peoples, governments, and human rights organizations to condemn these heinous crimes that threaten to explode the conflict, in which the consequences will not only be paid by the Palestinians but the entire region and the world. The Palestinians will use all means necessary permitted by international law to defend themselves from this brutal last occupation of the 21st century,” HE Tamer Almassri said.
