The nation observed Palestine Solidarity Day on Friday to give a united message to the world for standing beside the people of Palestine against Indian atrocities. The day was observed on the call of the Pakistan Ulema Council.

Prime Minister’s Special Representative on Religious Harmony Tahir Ashrafi urged the OIC to take notice of the matter.

He said that Pakistan would continue raising the voice for suppressed Kashmiris and Palestinians at every international forum.

Pakistan has strongly condemned the airstrikes by Israel in Gaza that resulted in deaths and injuries to so many innocent Palestinians including children.

Pakistan also called upon the international community to put an end to the blatant use of force and flagrant violation of the human rights of the Palestinian people.

The Israeli military has continued its bombardment of the besieged Gaza Strip, targeting several areas after rockets were fired from the enclave.

Meanwhile, Tahir Ashrafi in a telephonic conversation with Palestine’s Qazi ul Qaza Mahmoud al Habbash condemned the Israeli atrocities and stressed that unity amongst the Muslim Ummah is a must for resolution of Palestine issue.

He said the Muslim Ummah should fully back the Palestinian people.

Mahmoud al Habbash thanked Pakistan and its people for their steadfast support to the Palestinian cause. He said the world community should take urgent steps against Israeli oppression.
