In a call for global unity and solidarity, the national powers in Ramallah and Al-Bireh, Palestine, have announced a comprehensive strike set for the upcoming Monday. This collective action is part of a global movement seeking a worldwide strike, demanding an end to the aggression on the Gaza Strip and expressing support for the Palestinian people.
Unity Against Aggression
On Saturday, these powers issued a statement emphasizing the importance of public participation. Citizens are encouraged to fill the streets and public squares in cities, villages, and camps to demonstrate unity and support for the victims of the conflict. This show of unity is intended to send a clear message that the Palestinian people will resist attempts at displacement and continue their legitimate struggle until freedom and independence are achieved.
Worldwide Response to US Support for Israel
The statement highlighted global disapproval of the United States' full support for Israel in its war against Palestinian children and people. It also criticized the US veto that prevented a ceasefire resolution in the Security Council for Gaza. With this strike, a message is being sent from the living peoples of the world to stand with the Palestinian people and their legitimate rights to return, self-determination, and full sovereignty in their state with Jerusalem as its capital.
Gaza Strip Conflict: A Bleeding Wound
The Gaza Strip has been under a war of genocide by the Israeli regime for over two months, causing a catastrophic humanitarian crisis. The war has reportedly claimed 17,700 lives and injured 48,780 others. The Israeli campaign was launched following a surprise operation by the territory's resistance groups. The strike is expected to impact transportation, aviation, trade, banks, ports, and even education across the participating countries. The situation is further complicated by the US wielding its UN Security Council veto to shield its ally, Israel, from a demand for a ceasefire.
