Condemn Israel, US for genocidal war against Palestinian people
The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) condemns in the strongest terms the genocidal war against the Palestinian people being waged by Israel goaded by the US imperialists.
Israel’s relentless missile attacks and aerial bombardment of Gaza have targeted homes, hospitals, media offices and commercial establishments, killing more than 2,300 Palestinians, more than 720 of whom are children. More than 20,000 homes have been destroyed by Israeli bombs, even as it has cut off electricity and water to the city. More than 300,000 people have been forced to flee their homes, as Israel seeks to reoccupy the Palestinian land. The brutality of Israel’s attacks are matched only by the racist and xenophobic rhetoric employed by its officials against the Palestinians.
Israel’s attacks are grossly disproportionate to the armed offensives staged last October 7 by the armed wing of the Hamas, and are a brazen violation of international humanitarian law and civilized laws of war.
The CPP joins the international community in condemning the US imperialists for extending military support to Israel and abetting its genocidal war and crimes against the Palestinian people. The deployment of two US aircraft carriers in international waters off the occupied territories of Palestine raises to risk of prolonging the war and causing it to spill over other countries.
The CPP condemns the Marcos regime for declaring the Hamas last week as a “terrorist organization” in a bid to further ingratiate itself to the US imperialists. The Filipino people and their democratic forces stand by the Palestinian people in their struggle for national self-determination and in their right to bear arms and waged armed resistance to liberate their land from brutal Israeli occupation.
