The Libyan General People’s Congress(CGP), the country’s highest legislative authority, has condemned the attacks on Palestinians in Gaza, describing it as the ”Zionist holocaust”. In a statement issued at the end of its annual meeting in Sirte, the CGP said the deadly attacks on the Palestinians, which left dozens dead, had confirmed “the arrogance and hegemony of the Zionist terrorist entity and its agents”. The Congress also denounced the silence of the international community over the worsening situation in Gaza, saying it (international community) should move to ensure the lifting of the Israeli blockade of Gaza and end the ”genocide and human rights violations” being carried out against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. The Libyan CGP also asked the Arab and Islamic peoples to maintain their support for the Palestinian people to help them exercise their legitimate rights of resistance and recover their rights, mainly the return of all Palestinian refugees. Israeli’s stepped-up attacks against the Palestinians in Gaza has triggered an international furore, with some groups slamming Israel for a disproportionate use of force. But Israel said the attacks were aimed at stopping the barrage of rocket attacks on its territory. Panapress
