Secretary General of the Palestinian Ministerial Council in the Gaza Strip, Abdul-Salam Syam, has called for Egypt to take action to stop the continuous Israeli military aggression on Gaza.
Speaking to local Palestinian news agency Quds Net, Syam said: “The Israeli army continues its aggression on the Gaza Strip, intentionally targeting civilians.” He said that it is a “clear violation of the truce brokered by Egypt, reached in the wake of the Israeli war on the Strip in 2012.”
He called for Egypt to “urgently move to stop organised Israeli aggression.”
Syam affirmed that all Palestinian factions are “committed to the truce,” but that the Israeli occupation breaches it and “targets civilians and the Palestinian resistance.”
To face Israeli aggression Syam reiterated that the Palestinian resistance has the right to respond, “in order to protect people.”
The Israeli occupation has recently attacked several civilian and resistance targets in the Gaza Strip. The attacks caused the death of Palestinians and wounded several others.
