Ashrawi: Israel’s extra-judicial killings of Palestinians require urgent international intervention

Bethlehem/PNN/

PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi strongly condemned Israel’s extra-judicial killings of three Palestinians and one Jordanian today and yesterday in occupied Jerusalem and Hebron.

Ashrawi said :“Israel is flagrantly employing a systematic and willful policy of summary executions against the Palestinian people; such provocative acts are in direct violation of international law and conventions.

Ahe added that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his right-wing extremist government are creating a culture of violence, intimidation and lawlessness that is destroying the chances for peace; their volatile actions threaten to plunge the entire region into further instability, extremism and chaos.

We call on the international community to engage rapidly and effectively and to hold Israel accountable with punitive measures before it is too late.”
