DHAKA – Bangladesh has strongly condemned a raid by Israeli forces on the Palestinian town of Jenin that killed 9 people yesterday.
Bangladesh expressed deep concern over the repeated violations and disregard of basic civil norms, international human rights laws and international accords by the Israeli forces, according to the foreign ministry in a statement.
“Bangladesh firmly supports the inalienable rights of the people of Palestine for a sovereign and independent homeland and reaffirms its position in favour of establishing an independent state of Palestine on the basis of the two-state solution,” it said.
Bangladesh also reiterated its position that a lasting solution to the Palestine issue would be possible only with the engagement of both sides in cordial dialogue and calls upon all parties to work towards this end, it said.
