KUCHING, Feb 2: Malaysia has condemned in the strongest possible terms the suppression campaign against Palestinian detainees in several Israeli occupation prisons as well as the collective punishment and reprisals against the detainees from Jenin in the West Bank.

In a statement today, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim called on all right-minded world leaders and free peoples to categorically denounce the outright killings of the Palestinian peoples committed by the authorities of Israel.

“Malaysia also calls upon the international community to hold the Israeli regime to account for these crimes and demands the regime to cease immediately further acts of cruelty and barbarism.

“Malaysia expresses sympathy, condolences and prayers to the families of the scores of Palestinians killed and wounded on account of the unmitigated aggression of the Israeli forces during these recent raids on the Jenin refugee camp,” he said.

Anwar also reaffirmed Malaysia’s unwavering support for and solidarity with the people of Palestine, and their cause to achieve freedom from the illegal Israeli occupation and realise their aspirations for an independent and sovereign State of Palestine based on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as their Capital. — DayakDaily
