Over the last 3 days, Israel is unleashing new air strikes against targets along Gaza Strip, under the pretext of answering to the launching of rockets.

Since last March, at least 258 Palestinians have been murdered in the Gaza Strip by the Israeli army, during their protests for the end of the Israeli blockades and the return of the Palestinian Refugees to their homeland.

In parallel, the USA President signed a decree which recognizes the sovereignty of Israel over the Golan Heights, territory that Israel seized from Syria in 1967.

In the name of 95 million workers in 130 countries all over the globe, the WFTU strongly condemns this new escalation of Israeli aggressiveness against the people of Palestine, as well as the unacceptable decree signed by the USA President, which opposes any sense of the International Law.

We extend our internationalist solidarity with the people of Palestine and of Syria and we demand the end of the Israeli military operations and occupation and the end of the USA aggression against the people of the Middle East.
