The Ambassador of the State of Palestine in Harare, HE Tamer Almassri has condemned in the strongest terms, apartheid Israel’s pursuit of the ‘shoot-to-kill policy under the instructions of the military commanders and high-level political leaders that have turned its soldiers and settlers into mere machines to kill Palestinians.’
The Ambassador told Spiked Online Media that Israeli occupation forces have killed a Palestinian citizen almost every day since the start of the year 2023 in addition to home demolitions, dispossession of families, campaigns of incitement, and calls for ethnic cleansing.
“This should be condemned and the perpetrators of these crimes should be brought to justice. These latest crimes are a result of the Apartheid State of Israel’s failure to integrate its imported citizens from over 120 nations, causing racism and competition to adopt a culture of aggression, religious extremism, and violence against the Palestinian people.
“Similarly, we condemn the actions of Jewish supremacist Israeli Minister of National Security, Itamar Ben-Gvir who openly calls himself fascist and laments that Ben Gurion “did not finish the job” of extermination of Palestinians during the Nakba. This jeopardized the two-state solution, furthering instability in the region and the world. The agenda of this Israeli government represents an existential threat to the Palestinian people, as we can clearly see in its literal translation into actions on the ground, including raiding the Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound, and allowing settlers to attack Muslim and Christian sites and Palestinian civilians,” Ambassador Almassri said.
He added that the international community’s silence towards the crimes committed against the Palestinian people encourages Israel to continue to implement its colonial agendas which undermine any opportunity to achieve peace and end its occupation and colonization of the land of the State of Palestine.
“We call on the international community and especially the United States to compel the occupying regime to comply with international resolutions,” HE Almassri said.
