Palestine urges International Community to sanction Isreal



By Princess-Ekwi Ajide, Abuja

The lnternational community has been asked to uphold and stand firm in the implementation of international law, UN resolutions, Human Rights Declaration, and the Geneva Convention against Israeli government.
The Ambassador of Palestine to Nigeria, Abdallah Abu Shawesh who made the call in a press statement made available to newsmen in Abuja, said the call became imperative owing to a wide and extensive brutal aggression in Jenin refugee camp launched by the Israeli Occupation Forces which killed ten Palestinians, tens wounded leaving heavy properties and infrastructure damaged.
The Ambassador noted that the military attacks started with air strikes on many homes and other civilian properties in the densely populated Palestine refugee camp by a fully armed ground force that stormed the refugee camp.
He opined that the international community should take a clear and firm stance to oppose and enforce the occupying Power, Israel, to stop its current aggression and attacks on civilians in the Jenin refugee camp and to fully respect its obligations under international law as the occupying power.
Shawesh, emphasised that it is evident that Israel has chosen war trampling international law and trifling all UN resolutions, and is in pursuit of a military solution, to get rid of the Palestinian people from their ancient homeland by forcing them to surrender to its tyrannical messianic apartheid regime.
He lamented what he termed clear double standards used by the international community which according to him, gives Israel the green light to commit more crimes and more killing of the Palestinians and called for real and effective legal and diplomatic measures against Israel, similar to what had been taken in other parts of the world.

According to the Ambassador, it is long overdue for the international community to act immediately, and to take tangible measures to put an end to the shameful silence and constant inaction as the latest military aggression came as a result of the incitement campaign led by the current racist and far-right Israeli government.
