|Simon Pullicino Malta's Ambassador to Israel|
“The separate declaration, issued recently by the Maltese Government and the Opposition, in solidarity with the people of Gaza should be now backed by the calling back of the Maltese Ambassador in Tel Aviv”, stated the Communist Party of Malta.
“Malta should follow Sweden and other Latin American countries who withdraw their Ambassadors from Israel in protest at Israel’s military offensive in Gaza. The governments in Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Venezuela, Peru and El Salvador have all called back their ambassadors”.
“Malta should also support the resolution made by the UN Human Rights Council to investigate Israel over war crimes committed in Gaza. This resolution already has the backing of 29 countries”.
“The Palestinian death toll from a devastating Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip rose to 1283, according to a Gaza Health Ministry spokesman. At least 7170 Palestinians have also been injured in the ongoing Israeli attacks since July 7”, concluded the Communist Party of Malta.
