DEATH OF PALESTINIAN PROTESTERS ON 14 MAY 2018

That this House unreservedly and unequivocally condemns the brutal actions of the Israeli Government in Gaza on 14 May 2018; recognises the decision by President Trump to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as a deliberately inflammatory and dangerous act that has only served to heighten tensions in the region; believes this action has directly led to the killing of 55 Palestinians and injuring of over 2,000; further recognises the fundamental right of Palestinian people to demonstrate without being shot at with live ammunition, and the duty on the Israeli Government to respect the human rights of civilians; further condemns the US for abdicating all responsibility for leading peace efforts and calls on the rest of the international community to quickly determine how to fill the absence and avoid a more prolonged and open conflict; urges the Government to not simply remain silent on the systematic abuses in the occupied Palestinian territories; and calls on the Government to urge the Israeli Government to put an end to the entirely unnecessary death of protestors, and to work with the Palestinian Authority and the international community to find a peaceful way to negotiate a two-state solution to bring an end to this conflict.
