Today morning Israel unleashed new air strikes against targets along Gaza Strip, while the Israeli Minister for Defense ordered the closure of the Erez and Kerem Shalom crossing points as well as the restriction of the Gaza fishing zone from 6 to 3 miles.
On the behalf of 95 million workers in 130 countries all over the world, the WFTU condemns this new escalation of Israeli aggressiveness against the people of Palestine.
Since last March, more than 200 Palestinians have been murdered by the Israeli army, during their protests for their legitimate rights: the end of the Israeli blockades and the return of the Palestinian Refugees to their homeland.
We extend our internationalist solidarity with the people of Palestine and we demand:
STOP TO THE ISRAELI MILITARY OPERATIONS AND OCCUPATION! RECOGNITION OF THE INDEPENTENT PALESTINIAN STATE WITHIN 1967 BORDERS WITH EAST JERUSALEM AS ITS CAPITAL!
