“Attacking unarmed civilians, medical personnel, ambulances etc is a war crime; only one more of many committed by Israel against Palestinian people.
We need to push Israel with decisive actions for the end of these horrible crimes and for the end of its impunity.
Public condemnation is not enough unless other meassures are applied too, such as the immediately imposed embargo on arms sales to Israel; the request of suspension of the Association Agreement UE-Israel and the support without delay of the preliminary examination being carried out by the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court and even a call for the investigation of all the crimes committed. The EU and its Member States can´t be complicit in the crimes of apartheid against freedom and equality of Palestinians and the rights of Palestinian refugees”.
