Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that a single Muslim country’s reaction against Israel’s atrocities in Palestine will not make an impact. He made these remarks during a live telethon on Tuesday.
Stressing the importance of Muslim brotherhood and unity, PM Khan said that the entire Muslim world has to raise the issues of Palestine and Kashmir unequivocally to make it count.
On Wednesday, Khan expressed solidarity with the people of Palestine against Israeli atrocities and assured that Pakistan stands with Gaza and Palestine.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Imran shared Naom Chomsky’s quote, stating:
“You take my water, burn my olive trees, destroy my house, take my job, steal my land, imprison my mother and father, kill my brothers, bomb my country, starve us all and humiliate us all. But am to blame: I shot a rocket back.”

He captioned the tweet:
Khan, who has raised the issues of Palestine and Kashmir on every international forum, condemned Israeli forces’ attack on Palestinians in Al-Aqsa Mosque in a previous tweet and called it a violation of all norms of humanity and international laws.

At least 35 people were killed in Gaza as a result of air raids carried out by Israel against Hamas. In response to the air attack, Hamas launched multiple rocket barrages at Tel Aviv and Beersheba.
Meanwhile, in yet another ‘strong statement,’ the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) condemned escalating Israeli aggression and attack on Al-Aqsa Mosque that left hundreds of Palestinians dead and injured.
