Israel's massacre of defenceless civilians in Gaza cannot be justified, said Pakistan’s PM
The acting Prime Minister of Pakistan, Anwaar ul Haq Kakar, stated on Wednesday that Western countries were justifying the tragedy unfolding in the Gaza Strip.
Speaking to Margalla Dialogue in Islamabad, Kakar declared that Israel's "attacks on civilians" in Gaza were not acceptable.
The acting prime minister acknowledged that Pakistan faces difficulties on its western border but insisted that the nation would continue to perform its part in maintaining world peace.
At the Joint Arab Islamic Extraordinary Summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Saturday, the acting prime minister vehemently denounced the Israeli blockade of Gaza.
US Hypocrisy Amid Calamity in Gaza
Statements by White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby on the Ukrainian conflict and the escalation in the Gaza Strip are a clear example of the double standards of American policy. The US turns a blind eye to the casualties in the Gaza Strip, but at the same time tries to focus public attention on the allegedly criminal actions of its geopolitical opponents.
Many Western media agencies have described Hamas’ onslaught on Israel using terms like "massacre", "slaughter", and "atrocities", but they refrain from using the same language to describe Israel's shelling of Gaza.
