The fascist right-wing government in Israel and its criminal Zionist gangs have committed this evening a brutal aggression by bombing the Al-Ahli Hospital in the Gaza Strip, committing a horrific war crime, in which hundreds of Palestinians were killed and injured.
Raid Fahmi, the Secretary of the Central Committee of the Iraqi Communist Party, said in a statement to the Party’s media centre, “In these difficult and painful moments, we extend our sincere condolences and sympathy to the Palestinian people and the families of the martyrs, wishing the injured and wounded a speedy recovery”.
He pointed out, "What happened is shameful, a crime of genocide, a fascist act and a flagrant violation of all international norms and laws."
Fahmi stressed that "whoever supports this horrific attack is participating in it, no excuses or justifications can make sense of the piles of bodies of innocent victims, including children and women, of this unprecedented brutality."
He said that “the peoples of Arab countries must take the initiative and put pressure to expel the ambassadors of the Zionist occupation from a number of Arab capitals and stop the shameful normalization process. They must press their governments to move on various levels to stop the Zionist war of revenge, massacres and genocide, to mobilize solidarity and support for the Palestinian people and the population of the Gaza Strip, and to lift the unjust siege imposed on it.”
Fahmi concluded: "The developments confirm once again that there is no security or stability in the region without fulfilling the rights of the Palestinian people, first and foremost their right to life, and the establishment of their independent and sovereign national state, with Jerusalem as its capital."
