The State of Qatar has expressed its condemnation and renunciation of the savage Israeli raids on Gaza and the killing operations perpetrated by the Israeli forces against the Palestinian people. This came in a statement by an official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to Qatar News Agency. The source maintained that the raids constituted a continuation of the aggression policy carried out by Israel against the Palestinian people in an obvious challenge and flagrant violation of resolutions of the international legitimacy and principles of International and Humanitarian Laws. The source further called on the international community, particularly the international Quartet, to shoulder its responsibility and to move immediately and effectively to halt such aggression and provide international protection to the Palestinian people. The source reiterated the State of Qatar's support to the Palestinian people in their just struggle to attain national independence and legitimate rights, foremost of which being their right to self-determination and to establish their independent state with Holy Jerusalem as its capital.
