Congress chief Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday slammed the “merciless” bombings in Gaza, and stated it was India’s obligation as a member of the worldwide neighborhood to face up for what was proper.
In a publish on X, Priyanka Gandhi, who’s the Congress General secretary, stated, “The merciless bombing of Gaza continues with even more savagery than before the truce. Food supplies are scarce, medical facilities have been destroyed and basic amenities have been shut down. 16, 000 innocent civilians have been killed, including almost 10, 000 children, more than 60 journalists and hundreds of medical workers.”
She identified that “an entire nation is being wiped out”.
“These are people with dreams and hopes just like the rest of us. They are being ruthlessly thrown to their deaths right before our eyes. Where is our humanity?” Priyanka Gandhi questioned.
She stated, “India has all the time stood up for what’s simply on the worldwide stage. We fought for sanctions towards the apartheid regime of South Africa, we supported our brothers and sisters in Palestine from the start of their lengthy wrestle for freedom, and now we stand again and do nothing as a genocide takes place wiping them out from the face of the earth?
“It is India’s duty as a member of the international community to stand up for what is right. We must do all we can to ensure a ceasefire at the earliest, ” she added.
Her remarks got here after Israel intensified its assault in South Gaza.
The IDF entered South Gaza after it resumed the conflict with Hamas on December 1 after a seven-day truce.
