RAMALLAH - 15 December 2018: The Palestinian Foreign Ministry condemned in the strongest terms the demolition of a building at al Amari refugee camp in Ramallah by Israeli occupation forces after they raided the surrounding area.
In a statement released Saturday, the Palestinian ministry called on the international community to swiftly take action to stop such an aggression “before it is too late.”
The crime committed by the Israeli forces is a sort of collective punishment imposed on the Palestinian people and is a reflection of Israel’s political decisions, especially the escalating ones recently taken by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which included the demolition of several Palestinian houses, it said.
The Palestinian Foreign Ministry also held the Israeli government, led by Netanyahu, fully responsible for today’s aggression and its consequences.
