Despite repeated calls by the International Community, International Humanitarian Organizations and by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, Israel continues with its inhuman and immoral siege of the Gaza Strip for the third consecutive week.
This position is yet another proof of Israel’s disrespect for International Law and International Humanitarian Law. The International Community is asked today more than ever before not only to condemn but also to act decisively in order to put an end to the suffering of the civil population of the Gaza Strip.
We call upon the Swedish Government, the Parliament, the Swedish civil society, and each and every individual to raise their voice against the system of collective punishments that Israel is imposing on the Palestinians. The democratic world has to force Israel-the Occupying power- to abide by its obligations under International Law.
