Libya Saturday called for political and material support for Palestine to save the Palestinian people from constant Israeli attacks.
A “firm and urgent” Arab position should be adopted to check what it called “gen ocide mechanism” against the palestinian population, the Libyan general people’s committee for external relations and international cooperation said in a statement published here.
It called on the international community to act fast and stop “Israel’s forces from carrying on with their genocide against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank”.
The statement said after several months of embargo and suspension of the supply of fuel oils, which has caused residents of the Gaza Strip to live in total darkness, Israel has stepped up its “aggression” against Palestinians, causing dozens of deaths among the civilian population.
The statement, which also lambasts practices described as “a holocaust targetting the entire population in Gaza”, insists that Israel’s practices in the Gaza Strip confirmed that the peace process in the Middle East was nothing but a premeditated treachery which aims at covering up the permanent collective genocide campaign against the Palestinian people,.
More than 100 palestinians have been killed in the renewed Israeli attacks, launched 27 February.
The dead included 17 children, 28 women and a two-day old baby. More than 300 others have been wounded in the attacks.
