DPM: Global community must help end Gaza bloodshed

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia has urged the international community to collectively exert a bolder role in protecting and upholding the rights of Palestinians and end the bloodshed in Gaza.

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said Malaysia strongly called on the member states of the United Nations Security Council to stand united and act decisively to bring an immediate end to Israel’s blatant military aggression on the Palestinian people in Gaza.

“This international community also includes the member states of the Organisation of Islamic Co-operation and the Non-Aligned Move-ment.

“Malaysia also calls on the United States and its allies to immediately demand Israel to halt its perverse atrocities on the Palestinian people of Gaza,” he said in a statement.

The Gaza Health Ministry was reported as saying that the Gaza death toll had reached 1,732, including children, women and the elderly while 9,152 people were injured during the Israeli forces attack since July 8. — Bernama
