IJV SG Statement on current cycle of violence
We watch in horror and utterly condemn the pointless cycle of violence being stoked by Israel’s ongoing bombing of crowded civilian areas in Gaza, resulting in an escalating death toll, devastating civilian injuries and the continued destruction of homes and livelihoods. We reject the UK government’s one-sided support for Israel’s massive and disproportionate retaliation to the rocket attacks from Gaza and urge instead that it calls for peace negotiations and an end to all bloodshed.
