Joint Statement: Condemning the murderous attack of the Israeli army against the people of Palestine

The Communist and Worker Parties decisively condemn the attack of the Israeli army in Palestine territories, in the Gaza Strip, that has caused a bloodbath, murdering in cold blood unarmed demonstrators, men, women, and children.

The provocative decision of the Trump administration to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to move there the US Embassy, over and against the general international outcry, has completely unbridled the aggressiveness of Israel that continues the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories and continues massacring the Palestinian people.

The governments of the countries that assume a stance of equal distances, identifying the victim with the offender, have great responsibilities; the position of the European Union that, while an organized massacre of the Palestinian people is occurring, is calling “all sides to show restraint” and is upgrading its relations with the Israeli state is unacceptable.

The Communist and Worker Parties express our solidarity and our support to the Palestinian people and to its just struggle in favour of its own independent and sovereign Palestinian state within the 1967 borders with its capital in East Jerusalem. We continue our struggle and we call the peoples to strengthen their demonstrations so that the murderous military intervention of the Israeli Army in the Palestinian territories ceases and to revoke the decision of the USA to move its Embassy in Jerusalem.
