Akram said: “The world is witnessing a humanitarian tragedy of epic proportions before our eyes. Palestinians are being bombed indiscriminately and without mercy or regret. Their essential lifelines – water, food, fuel – have been cut off “More than one million people have been internally displaced.”

He said Pakistan strongly and unequivocally condemns the Israeli air strikes and systematic and barbaric crimes against Palestinians.
“These Israeli attacks on civilians, civilian objects and infrastructure, the blockade of water, food and fuel, as well as the forced transfer of people from the occupied territory, are gross violations of international humanitarian law and constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity.”
Akram called for reaffirming the right of the Palestinian people under international law to struggle by all possible means, including armed struggle, to secure their independence from foreign occupation and exercise their right to self-determination.

He also underlined the need to consider ways to prevent the recurrence of this genocide.
