Bangladesh condemns Israeli ‘massacre’ in Jenin refugee camp

DHAKA, Friday, January 27, 2023 (WAFA) – Bangladesh Thursday condemned the Israeli massacre that resulted in the killing of nine Palestinians in Jenin refugee camp, according to Bangladesh Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“Bangladesh strongly condemns the violence and massacre unleashed against Palestinians and killing of 10 Palestinians, including children and elderly, by the Israeli occupation forces in Jenin refugee camp today on 26 January 2023,” the Foreign Affairs Ministry said in a press statement.

On Thursday, Israeli forces killed nine Palestinians, including an elderly woman, and wounded 20 others in a raid on the northern West Bank refugee camp of Jenin, in what was described one of the deadliest days in the occupied West Bank since Israel ramped up raids at the start of 2021.

A tenth Palestinian was also killed by Israel in al-Ram town, north of Jerusalem.

“Bangladesh expresses deep concern over the repeated violations and disregard of basic civil norms, international human rights laws and international accords by the Israeli forces, which have invoked sympathy of millions of oppressed people around the world,” the statement read.

The Ministry went on to denounce Israeli occupation policies and ongoing attacks against the Palestinian people and called for “sustained” international measures to end Israeli “heinous” actions.

“Bangladesh denounces the policies adopted by the Israeli occupation forces and continued attacks on the city of Jerusalem and the Holy sites, including the AlAqsa Mosque, and urges the international community to take sustained measures to end such kind of violent attacks, and demolition of houses and hindering the medical treatment to the wounded civilians and to end the heinous actions in the occupied territories.”

It reiterated firm support to “the inalienable rights of the people of Palestine for a sovereign and independent homeland” and reaffirmed “its position in favor of establishing an independent state of Palestine on the basis of two-state solution.”

“Bangladesh also reiterates its position that a lasting solution to the Palestine issue would be possible only with the engagement of both sides in cordial dialogue and calls upon all parties to work towards this end,” the statement concluded.
