PCP condemns the new escalation of Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people

The Portuguese Communist Party condemns the recent Israeli air strikes against the Palestinian territories of the Gaza strip and stresses the seriousness of the Israeli threats of a new military offensive against the Palestinian people.

Such crimes are inseparable from recent and repeated provocations against international legality and the Palestinian people, such as the decision to extend the occupation and colonization of Palestinian land in the West Bank or the recent statements by Israeli officials in relation to Jerusalem.

In the face of the obvious Israeli strategy of launching a new escalation of State terrorism against the Palestinian people and of continuous and premeditated sabotage of any progress towards a peaceful, just and lasting solution to the Palestinian problem, the PCP demands from the Portuguese government an unequivocal condemnation of this new crime by the Israeli government and armed forces and reiterates its position that these Israeli actions and statements, which are illegal under the most diverse points of view, must, in light of the Portuguese Constitution, have repercussions on the relations between the Portuguese State and the Israeli State.

The PCP reiterates its solidarity with the Palestinian people and its struggle for the inalienable right to establish the independent and sovereign Palestinian State, within the pre-1967 war borders and with its capital in Jerusalem.
