The Workers Party has condemned Monday’s murderous attacks on Palestinian civilians by the Israeli state. At least 55 Palestinians have been killed and 2,400 wounded by Israeli forces on the deadliest day of violence since the 2014 attacks on Gaza.
Expel Israeli ambassadors The Party’s International Secretary, Gerry Grainger, has called on the Irish and UK governments, to immediately expel the Israeli Ambassador from Ireland and the UK and impose sanctions against Israel to demonstrate that the people will no longer tolerate these murderous attacks.
Contempt for Palestinian lives These events, which took place on the occasion of the hostile and provocative opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, are a continuing demonstration of Israeli contempt for the lives of Palestinians.
It follows a pattern of massacres from Deir Yassin in 1948, through Qibya, Nahalin and Kufr Kassem in the 1950s, Samu and other villages in the 1960s and 70s and Sabra and Shatila in 1982 together with a systematic campaign of terror against Gaza in recent years and the killing and injuring of Palestinians during and after recent protests.
