Palestinians facing intensified violence

Israeli military, police and settler violence against Palestinians is intensifying quickly. Over the past week, at least 900 Palestinians have been injured, at least 60 with live fire. Only today, six Palestinians in Gaza were shot dead by Israeli soldiers who opened fire on a demonstration. These peaks in lethal violence are a part of the systematic violence Palestinians are subjected to under Israel’s Apartheid regime.

Ryvka Barnard, Militarism & Security Campaigner at War on Want, said:

"The UK government remains complicit in this violence against Palestinians so long as it maintains its diplomatic and military support for Israeli policies of aggression and occupation. We call on all people of conscience to pressure the UK government to stop arming Israel and respect its own obligations towards the human rights of the Palestinian people."
