JERUSALEM, Friday, June 17, 2022 (WAFA) – The Lutheran World Federation has urged the international community to find a lasting solution to the Palestinian issue and to bring an end to the Israeli occupation.
LWF said in a statement, "The Council is deeply concerned by the continued Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and the recent escalation of violence, including the killing of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, other journalists and other innocent victims."
"It is discouraging that thus far, no solution has been provided to the serious situation and as a result people's human rights, lives, livelihoods and dignity are threatened," added the statement.
LWF praised the work of its affiliate hospital, the Augusta Victoria Hospital, noting that the hospital's services are "often threatened by a recurring financial crisis that is directly linked to the conflict."
It called on donors, including the United States and the European Union, to provide timely funds to support the medical center.
