The Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemns strongly the Israeli occupation forces' use of bullets in the face of peaceful demonstrations in the Gaza Strip on the anniversary of the Land Day, which resulted in the death of a number of martyrs and hundreds of wounded unarmed Palestinians.
The Foreign Ministry regards the Israeli military escalation as a flagrant violation of international conventions and laws.
It affirms Iraq's support for the brotherly Palestinian people and its steadfast attitude in supporting the Palestinian cause and the steadfastness of the Palestinian people to ensure the establishment of an independent state with Al-Qudus as its capital.
Dr. Ahmed Mahjoob
