Alwaght- Venezuela urged the United Nations to take action against Israeli regime's “unacceptable” aggression against the Palestinian people.
Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza on Thursday posted a video on his Twitter account showing the collapse of a tower in Gaza as a result of Israeli airstrikes, saying, “The international community cannot accept those acts of war.”
“The UN has to react immediately. It is not a matter of being for or against a cause, religion or ideology. It is a matter of humanity. It is totally unacceptable,” Arreaza said in the tweet.
Gaza’s Health Ministry says at least 119 people, including 31 children, have been killed, and 830 others have been wounded in Israeli strikes since Monday.
Palestinian resistance fighters have launched hundreds of rockets into Israeli-occupied territories in retaliation for the Tel Aviv regime’s bombardments of the Gaza Strip as well as its brutal crackdown on worshipers at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem al-Quds.
Tensions escalated in Jerusalem al-Quds throughout the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, amid the planned forced expulsions of dozens of Palestinians from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, where illegal Israeli settlers are looking to take over the properties of Palestinian families.
The violent crackdown by Israeli forces against Palestinians in Jerusalem al-Quds has sparked global concern.
Israel occupied East Jerusalem al-Quds, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip during the Six-Day War in 1967. It later had to withdraw from Gaza, but has been occupying the other territories since.
