Once again, the Israeli state is organising and covering up the killing of Palestinian men and women.
At the end of April, there were calls for murder and attacks in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood of Jerusalem, resulting in numerous injuries. Since 2 May, 13 families in this neighbourhood, which is occupied by Israel, have been threatened with eviction to make way for settlers. On 6 May, the Israeli army murdered a 16-year-old Palestinian boy near Nablus. Since 7 May, Palestinians travelling to the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem have been subjected to violent attacks by the Israeli army. Air attacks by the Israeli army on the Gaza Strip have left more than 20 people dead, including children, and dozens injured∙es.
These dramatic and bloody events are in addition to the daily persecution by the occupation forces that has been going on for decades.
- The member organisations of the International Labor Network of Solidarity and Struggle are fighting against colonialism, racism, fascism, apartheid, human rights violations, for the right to self-determination of peoples and thus of the Palestinian people.
- We support the struggle of the Palestinian people, their demands and their call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against the colonising state.
- Through our comrades in the Palestinian trade unions that are members of the Network, we send our full support to the Palestinian people and call for participation in the rallies and demonstrations that are being held in many cities around the world these days.
