The Palestinian Return Centre has spent the past week distributing a factsheet and resources to UK Members of Parliament and Members of the European Parliament, explaining the current situation in Sheikh Jarrah and the current escalation of Israeli violence. Alongside this factsheet we have requested that both MP’s and MEP’s act accordingly to ensure a de-escalation of violence and to prevent the further loss of Palestinian lives.
We have been advocating to the international community that they should intervene immediately to stop the military assault on Gaza, stop the forcible transfer of over 500 Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah, to call on the Israeli government to refrain their population from committing such heinous acts of aggression and terror and to urge Israeli forces to respect Palestinians rights and holy places. The international community should amplify its voices and call to place sanctions on Israel especially the sales of arms and weapons.
The international community should place pressure on Israel through sanctions in order to prevent any further Palestinian deaths and injuries, to end Israel’s illegal military occupation of the West bank and blockade of Gaza, to pressure Israel to abide with international law and to protect Palestinians inalienable right to stay in their homes, and to return to their ancestral land.
