Israel-Gaza War: The Caretaker Prime Minister of Pakistan, Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar telephoned Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to discuss the latest situation resulting from the ongoing brutalities of Israeli occupation forces against innocent Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.
According to the media reports, the Caretaker Prime Minister expressed Pakistan’s strong condemnation of the incessant and lethal bombardment by Israeli occupation forces, particularly the bombing of Al-Ahli Hospital.

Both leaders highlighted the importance of the international community putting pressure on Israel to stop the bloodshed immediately. They also agreed on the importance of easing the embargo of Gaza in order to permit the delivery of critical humanitarian and medical relief to the affected people. Pakistan has also sent its first shipment of humanitarian aid to Palestinians who arrived in Egypt yesterday.

He also reaffirmed Pakistan’s unwavering commitment to a just and lasting resolution of the Palestinian conflict based on the “two-state” solution, which would result in the establishment of a sovereign and viable Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital and the pre-1967 borders.
The Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas expressed gratitude to Pakistan for its long-standing and consistent support for the Palestinian people in their battle for independence from Israeli occupation.
