Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday deplored that the world is watching killings in Gaza by Israeli forces without taking any effective step to stop the tragedy.

The prime minister made the comments when visiting Secretary General of the Fateh Movement (Ruling Party) of Palestine Lt. General Jebreel Alrjoub called on her at her official residence Ganabhaban.

PM’s speech writer M Nazrul Islam briefed the reporters after the call on.

Nazrul said the prime minister reiterated her unequivocal support for the Palestinians and condemned the killing of thousands in Gaza, including women and children, and attacks on hospitals by the Israeli forces.

She also expressed her condolence for the deaths caused by the Israeli forces in Gaza and demanded an immediate ceasefire there.

She said that Bangladesh sent relief assistance for Palestine people twice through Egypt.


“I always raise my voice in international forums for the Palestinian people whenever I get a chance,” the PM was quoted as saying.

She recalled the visit of Yasser Arafat in Bangladesh in 1997 during the Awami League regime.

The prime minister came down heavily on the human rights organisations for their stance to remain mum regarding the attack of Israeli forces in Gaza. “This is one kind of hypocrisy,” she said.

Hasina urged the Muslim Ummah to remain united in their support for the Palestinians.

“This should be done for the sake of protecting the Muslim Ummah and ease the misery of the Palestinians,” she said.

In this connection she called for implementation of the UN resolution that states that East Jerusalem will be the capital of the Palestine.
