Press Statement


The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:



The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) expresses its outrage and strong condemnation at the death of 58 Palestinians killed by the Israeli armed forces at the Gaza-Israel border fence.


The Palestinians have been holding marches to the border to demand the return of the people to the lands from which they were evicted by Israel.  The opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, in complete violation of international law, on that day has emboldened the Israeli forces to resort to this brazen attack.


This brutal massacre of Palestinians  must not only be condemned but action taken against Israel for this grave human right violations.  The Government of India must strongly condemn this barbarity by Israeli forces. The UN Security Council must act in this regard.
