In the month since Israel launched military operations in Gaza on june 28, over 130 Palestinians have been killed, including over 30 children. This position paper urges Canada to condemn the recent acts of Israeli collective punishment (kidnapping Palestinian legislators, attacking electricity and water supplies, closing the bordures and attacking transportation infrastructure) and provide humanitarian aid to the Palestinians, victims of the violence in Gaza.
This position paper recalls the importance for Canada to provide humanitarian help to the Palestinian population, in spite of the Palestinian people’s election choices.
