RASED: Washington and its allies responsible for the Israeli
crimes in Gaza
[ 19/11/2012 - 09:42 PM ]
The Palestinian Human Rights Foundation (RASED) condemned the Israeli
inhumane crimes against the unarmed people in the Gaza strip and the
Israeli deliberate targeting of innocent children and the Palestinian
infrastructure and buildings, stressing that it is a genocide against
the Palestinian people.
RASED has strongly condemned, in a statement on Monday, the Israeli
attack on the tower, which includes media offices and journalists, with
the aim of hiding the truth and to blackout its brutal crimes in Gaza.
The statement called on the international community to resume their
political, legal, and humanitarian responsibilities and to stop the
Israeli aggression against the Palestinian Arab people.
RASED stated that the U.S. administration and its allies in the
region are the responsible for the Israeli crimes in the Gaza Strip
under the pretext of self-defense, forgetting that children and
innocents are being targeted in front of the whole world in light of the
Arab official shameful silence towards the Israeli policy that dominates
some Arab and European governments, led by the U.S. administration.
We call on all civil and voluntary institutions to launch relief
convoys to rescue victims in the oppressed strip, and we call on the
Egyptian government to make greater efforts to stop the aggression and
lift the unjust siege on Gaza and open the Rafah crossing to the
citizens unconditionally", the statement added.
