ISLAMABAD:Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday took to Twitter to reiterate his support for the people of Palestine, denouncing atrocities being committed by Israel. The death toll from the Israeli air strikes in Gaza strip has risen to 35. The tense atmosphere in Jerusalem over the past couple of days reached a crescendo on Tuesday when Israeli planes bombed Gaza following reports of rockets being fired into Israeli territory. Israeli forces have been attacking Palestinian worshippers with stun grenades and rubber bullets over the past several days following protests against Jewish settlements in the Sheikh Jarrah area. The massacre invite rebuke from most Muslim countries, with PM Imran Khan tweeting his support for Palestine as well. “I am PM of Pakistan and #WeStandWithGaza #WeStandWithPalestine,” he tweeted. The prime minister tweeted an excerpt from what seems to be an old article of Noam Chomsky on the Palestine-Israel situation. This is, by far, the heaviest exchange between Israel and Hamas since a 2014 war in Gaza, and prompted international concern that the situation could spiral out of control.
