In light of the recent events in the Middle East, we strongly condemn all forms of violence and inhumanity towards the most vulnerable members of our society, including children, women, and the elderly, anywhere in the world. Our commitment to peace, justice, and the respect for human life remains a cornerstone of our vision.
There is deep concern about the direction things are taking. Unfortunately, civilian infrastructure is not spared from Israeli authorities. The recent atrocious bombing of a hospital in Gaza, which resulted in a devastating toll of Palestinian civilian casualties in the hundreds, is a compelling testament to this.
The current situation in the Gaza Strip, marked by a total blockade that restricts access to water, electricity, and gas, raises significant concerns and goes against fundamental principles of human rights and international law.
We salute the response of the Luxembourgish Minister of Foreign Affairs, who, from the outset of these atrocities, has taken a courageous stance and advocated for just and equitable solutions, along with a very small minority of European states. We urge the international community to do the same.
Hoping that the dignity of every human being (even those who have been referred to as animals) will be preserved, we pray to the Almighty for His assistance and for humanity to triumph over barbarism.
