Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs and National Security Sartaj Aziz has said that Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif led Pakistan’s strong condemnation of Israel’s aggression against Palestinians. He said this while addressing expanded extra-ordinary meeting of OIC Executive Committee on Occupied Palestinian Territory here today in OIC headquarter.
He said, ‘Israel’s assault on unarmed Palestinian children and women was deliberate. And so assured was Israel of the lack of any consequence, that it pursued its massacre unflinchingly. Israel’s disdain for international human rights and humanitarian law should be a matter of grave concern for the international community.’ “In the last one month, the international community helplessly witnessed brutal carnage of innocent and unarmed Palestinians by Israel’s defence forces, armed with the latest and sophisticated weaponry. While Israel brazenly called it a war to defend its national security, the world considered Israel’s actions crimes against humanity. Pakistan’s Prime Minister Mr. Nawaz Sharif led Pakistan’s strong condemnation of Israel’s aggression against Palestinians.”
“Mr Chairman, Israel’s assault on unarmed Palestinian children and women was deliberate. And so assured was Israel of the lack of any consequence, that it pursued its massacre unflinchingly. Israel’s disdain for international human rights and humanitarian law should be a matter of grave concern for the international community. Up till now more than 1800 Palestinians, including more than 400 children and 200 women were sacrificed at the altar of political expediency that prevented global community from taking stern action against evident, gross and continued violations of international law by Israel.”“Pakistan condemned, in the strongest terms, the atrocities committed by Israel in Gaza as well as its attacks against the UN premises. This condemnation was shared by the OIC Group as well as by the Non-Aligned Movement. The joint statements of OIC and NAM continued to call upon the UN Security Council to stop Israel from killing innocent civilians but to no avail.”
He further mentioned  that During the one-month saga, the powerlessness of the UN Security Council, and the inaction of the United Nations as a whole, to prevent the bloodshed of Palestinians is regrettable. No doubt, the Security Council, being the premier international body for maintaining international peace and security, bears the burden of this failure to take effective and timely action., he added.
