West News Wire: The governments of Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico have demanded an immediate end to hostilities in Palestine and encouraged the parties engaged to stop the bloodshed from getting worse.
“The governments of Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico have learned of a new large-scale Israeli military incursion into the city of Jenin in the Palestinian West Bank with dismay express their sincere condolences to the families of those killed and urge all parties to cease hostilities immediately to prevent the escalation of a spiral of violence leading to an increase in the number of civilian casualties, population displacement, and destruction of urban infrastructure.”
The Israeli regime launched its biggest air and ground offensive in recent years early Monday, with Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) planes carrying out more than 10 strikes on what it described as “terrorist infrastructure” in the Jenin refugee camp.
The three Latin American countries condemned terrorism in all their manifestations and called for respect for international humanitarian law and a two-state solution in which Palestine and Israel coexist within mutually agreed and internationally recognized borders.
The Israeli raids resulted in the deaths of 12, including five children, and injuries to 140 civilians, with 30 of them in serious condition, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health’s announcement on Tuesday.
According to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli army has stopped attacking the West Bank city of Jenin.
At least ten Palestinians were killed and dozens more were hurt when the Tel Aviv regime started a significant aerial and ground offensive in Jenin and its refugee camp on Monday. Some of the injured were listed in critical or serious condition. On Tuesday, the attacks went on as usual.
The military assault appeared to be the largest attack in the occupied West Bank in around two decades as the regime deployed armed drones and hundreds of troops against the innocent Palestinians.
Israeli troops also forced hundreds of families in the Jenin camp to leave their homes in preparation for demolishing them in order to reach the resistance fighters.
The regime’s inhumane moves drew widespread condemnation from Muslim and non-muslim countries.
