Peoples’ Liberation Front of Sri Lanka condemns brutal attack on Palestine people carried out on the occasion of the opening of a USA’s embassy in Jerusalem
According to the latest reports, 52 people including several children and a paramedic have died and more than 2400 have been injured in attacks by Israel armed forces that fired on Palestinian people who protested against the opening of the embassy in the city of Jerusalem on Monday. We express our deepest condolences to the relatives of the victims and to the people of Palestine and expect a fast recovery for the injured.
We strongly condemn the brutal attack by Israeli forces and the provocative action of the USA administration. Our party in an earlier statement on US president’s decision to move the embassy of USA to Jerusalem expressed its alarm regarding the possibility of eruption of another bloodbath due to president Trump’s disgraceful decision Now the occupying forces of Israeli have proved that they are ready to kill any number of civilians to please their war hungry masters in Israel and in the USA.
When the President of the USA declared his intention of opening an embassy in Jerusalem at the end of last year, strong protests erupted all over the world. In the United Nations, an absolute majority of nations completely opposed the unjust, baseless decision of the USA and defeated it by an overwhelming majority. The USA administration, particularly the current president, is continuing its imperialist agenda and delaying the establishment of world peace, at a time when greater collaboration and global peace are essential to solve grave issues faced by the mankind.
We expect that democratic leaders of the world will act to restrain disastrous undertakings of the USA administration in the future.
We , with people of Sri Lanka, extend our warm hands and hearts to the people of Palestine at this very difficult moment.
We are sure the oppressor and its imperialist masters will never be able to stop the just struggle of people of Palestine being carried out for a Sovereign Palestine State. The Palestinian people and its friends of all countries will fight until the Palestinian flag is hoisted over the mountains of East Jerusalem.
Irrespective of the mightiness of the Empires it has been proved in the history of mankind that the final victors will be the people!
We condemn the US President’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel!
We condemn the cruel, shameful mass killing by Israeli government!
Long live free Palestine!
