The Prime Minister’s office has issued a statement pledging support for those seeking to flee Gaza, Israel and the West Bank, where previous support focused on those fleeing Israel. He further echos international calls for a humanitarian corridor in Gaza for access to aid and essential supplies.
CMPAC is disappointed to see that the Prime Minister has yet to condemn the unlawful blockade of water, food and fuel, the ongoing bombing of homes, or Israel’s efforts to displace 1.1 million civilians.
Our advocacy is not done. With the Prime Minister’s statement still falling short of the calls we had made in our community letter, signed by Muslim organizations from across the country, we will continue to stand for the innocent civilians in Gaza,
