KUALA LUMPUR: The Government of Malaysia vehemently condemns an irresponsible airstrike carried out by the Israeli regime on the Al-Nuseirat camp in the Gaza Strip on 14th March 2024.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement said, the attack had claimed the lives of eight (8) Palestinians and injured more than 20 others who were camp personnel preparing to distribute the much-needed food supplies contributed by Malaysians through the Humanitarian Trust Fund for the People of Palestine (AAKRP) and managed by Ops Ihsan (a coalition of Malaysian NGOs).

“This reprehensible act of aggression against innocent civilians underscores the flagrant disregard for human rights and international humanitarian law by the Israeli authorities.

“Such indiscriminate and disproportionate violence against the Palestinian populace constitutes a grave violation of their fundamental rights to life, security, and dignity,” the ministry’s statement said Friday.

The statement stressed that those present at the camp were innocent Palestinians who were not a threat to the occupiers, but merely carrying out their humanitarian responsibilities towards fellow Palestinians.

“We urgently implore the international community to intervene promptly and decisively, holding the regime accountable for their blatant disregard for human lives and ensuring the safety of the Palestinian people.

“It is imperative that justice is served, and measures are taken to prevent the recurrence of such atrocities. Solidarity and support must be extended to the Palestinian community in their quest for justice, peace, and the realization of their inherent rights,” the statement said.

According to the statement, Malaysia remains steadfast in its principled position that the Palestinians unequivocally deserve the realization of their own independent and sovereign state, based on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its Capital. – Malaysia World News
