LAHORE:

Senior government officials including Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Sardar Usman Buzdar, Governor Chaudhry Sarwar and Senior Minister Abdul Aleem Khan have strongly condemned Israel's bombardment on Gaza.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the CM regretted that Israel violated all international laws to play with fire and blood in Palestine.

He said the occupying forces are committing the worst cruelty by targeting women and children.

“Regrettably, Israel has violated all human rights by targeting innocent children and women,” he stressed.

Buzdar appealed to the global community to act to save unarmed Palestinians from the terrorism of their arch-enemy.

He added that practical steps are needed in this regard and silence of the international community over Israeli aggression is criminal negligence.

“The Islamic countries should take prompt action to stop Israeli crimes,” Sarwar underscored.

“Palestinian people should be given their basic human rights and their just right to freedom,” he stressed.

Senior Minister Abdul Aleem Khan also spoke in favour of the Palestinians right to freedom and safety.

As a 53-year-old news consumer I find that in this world a very large number of people however precious their lives can atrociously be considered disposable to a nation. And when the young children of those people take notice of this they re vulnerable to begin perceiving themselves as worthless. When I say this I primarily have in mind Black and indigenous-nation Americans and Canadians though perhaps to a lesser degree . Although their devaluation as human beings is basically based on their race it still reminds me of the devaluation albeit perhaps subconsciously of the daily civilian lives lost a.k.a. casualties in protractedly devastating war zones and sieges. At some point they can end up receiving just a careless couple of column inches in the First World s daily news.
