The business community has expressed solidarity with the people of Palestine, including the families of the martyrs of the Israeli invasion, and called for an immediate response from Islamic countries to stop the criminal actions of the occupiers in Jerusalem.

In a statement on Wednesday, Fehmida Jamali, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf vice president and former regional chairperson of Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FPCCI), said that Israeli violations in Jerusalem and Jewish extremists led to ignition of the situation in this dangerous way.

She said that Israeli government must finally understand that it will not be able to suppress the Palestinian people’s legitimate rights and demands by using indiscriminate and disproportionate power.

President of Pakistan Businesses Forum (PBF) Sahibzada Usman Zulfiqar declared total rejection and condemnation of these oppressive Israeli practices.

He said, “Israeli airstrikes are killing men, women and children in Gaza. I send my love, solidarity and prayers to the Palestinian people.”

Chairman Businessmen Panel (Federal), Riaz Khattak said the actions have caused concern in the Muslim world as the site is one of the most religious sites in Islam.

“We strongly condemn the attacks carried out by the occupation forces at Al-Aqsa Mosque transgressing the safety and security of the worshippers,” the statement said.

Vice President, Pakistan Businesses Forum Ahmad Jawad said the indiscriminate use of force by Israeli forces against defenceless Palestinians, causing death and injuries, defies all humanitarian norms and human rights laws.

Pakistan business community calls upon the international community to bring to an end the blatant use of force and flagrant violation of human rights of the Palestinian people.

He also called on the United Nations to act immediately to stop the Israeli violence. —TLTP
