The Left parties – CPI(M), CPI, CPI(ML), AIFB and RSP - have issued the following statement:
Immediately Stop this Genocide of Palestinians
The Left Parties are strongly critical of the Modi government for its refusal to join the global call for an immediate ceasefire at the India-US 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue.
Left Parties had earlier urged the Modi government to stop endorsing US-Israeli genocide. At the 2+2 dialogue, there was a call for “humanitarian pause”, with India reiterating a 2-State solution. Call for a “pause” and not ceasefire, at this juncture, only legitimises this ongoing Israeli genocide.
Israeli genocidal assault is leaving no land for Palestinians to live in their own country. More than 10,000 people have been killed, nearly half of them are children and hospitals are bombed in these barbarous and savage attacks.
This Israeli genocide of Palestinians must stop immediately. Only then can a solution emerge.
