The statement from the Ministry is as follows:
It is worrying that Israel’s policies of pressure and violence against the Palestinian people continue to increase during Ramadan.
The Israeli Administration, which blocked the freedom of worship of the Palestinian people during Ramadan with the restrictions on the Masjid al-Aqsa, continues to expand the illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories, and also does not take any measures against the acts of violence against the Palestinian people living in these areas and encourages these attacks.
It is seen that the Israeli Administration is also trying to prevent the election activities of the Palestinians in East Jerusalem, and also arbitrarily detained some Palestinians in order to interrupt the election process in the West Bank.
Last night’s air strikes against Gaza by Israeli warplanes constitute the latest example of the Israeli Administration’s aggressive policies.
Israel must put an end to these aggressive policies that damage peace and stability in the region.
