RAMALLAH, July 21, 2014 (WAFA) – The Palestinian consensus government Monday condemned, in the strongest terms, the “heinous massacre committed by the Israeli occupation forces against innocent Palestinian civilians in the neighborhood of Shujaeya, which led to the death of more than 60 civilians and the injury of about 400 others.”

In a statement Monday, the government renewed “its demand for the international community to immediately intervene to stop the Israeli aggression on the Palestinian people,” while it also called on “all international relief organizations to intervene and save our people in the Gaza Strip.”

The Government considered the continued Israeli massacres against our people in the Gaza Strip, most recently Shujaeya’s massacre, as “war crimes that require immediate international intervention to protect Gaza’s civilians under the four Geneva Conventions.”
