Ó Snodaigh welcomes summoning of Israeli Ambassador
Sinn Féin Human Rights and International Affairs spokesperson Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD has welcomed the fact that the Irish Government has called in the Israeli Ambassador. Deputy Ó Snodaigh said Foreign Affairs Minister Dermot Ahern must express, in the strongest terms, Ireland's opposition to Israel's onslaught on Lebanon.
He said, "I welcome the fact that the government has finally called in the Israeli Ambassador. I called for this to be done last week.
"Dermot Ahern now needs to express to the ambassador, in the strongest possible terms, Ireland's opposition to Israel's onslaught in Lebanon. He needs to make clear that what Israel is doing is wrong and must stop immediately. Over 300 people have now died in this massacre so it is imperative that the Irish Government does all in its power to bring it to an end." ENDS
