International action needed after Gaza massacre - Anderson

30 March, 2018 - by Martina Anderson MEP

Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has condemned the Israeli military after 12 Palestinians were killed and hundreds injured in Gaza today. 

Martina Anderson said: 

"The killings of at least 12 Palestinians and the wounding of more than 750 others by the Israeli military today must be totally condemned. 

"Palestinians were taking part in legitimate protests at the border when they were fired upon by the Israeli military. 

"Statements from the Israeli military are reminiscent of those of the British army after the murders on Bloody Sunday. 

"What happened today in Gaza was nothing short of a massacre and the international community needs to act to prevent further loss of life and respond with robust action against Israel.  

"There is a responsibility on the international community and the EU in particular to defend Palestinians and to challenge Israeli aggression."
