G.O.B. Issues Statement Condemning Gaza Brutality

On Tuesday, former Prime Minister Said Musa got the ball rolling by publicly condemning the unnecessary deaths of over sixty Palestinian nationals, including children, and thousands of injuries caused by confrontations at the Israeli border with the Gaza Strip. And on Wednesday, Prime Minister Dean Barrow joined in. Today, an official statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemned the use of force by the Israel Defence Force against Palestinian civilians who were peacefully protesting the moves of the United States and Guatemala to relocate their embassies from national capital Tel Aviv to the revered holy city of Jerusalem, which is also claimed by the Palestinian state. The statement calls for an end to the violence, restraint by the military, and that the conflict must be resolved peacefully by negotiation. Belize, which voted in the United Nations last December supporting a resolution condemning the U.S. move, continues to support the rights of the Palestinian people, according to the Ministry, to live in their own state side by side with Israel, within secure and mutually recognized borders, and in peace and security with its neighbors.
