Progressive Alliance calls for an immediate cessation of violence in Israel and Palestine!
Israeli airstrikes on Gaza and rockets fired from Gaza kill and injure innocent people! After days of violence in Jerusalem, where hundreds of Palestinians were injured protesting against forced evictions of Palestinian families by the Israeli authorities and after the Israeli police stormed the Al-Aqsa mosque for repeated times during the holy month of Ramadan.
Both sides have to respect human rights and international law. We stand in solidarity with all progressive forces in Israel, Palestine and the Middle East who seek peace and work towards a life of all people in freedom, justice and solidarity.
We reiterate that there is only one solution: Saving the two-state solution in Israel and Palestine
