ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president and Leader of Opposition in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif has said that Israeli forces attacked innocent Palestinians in Al-Aqsa Mosque during holy month of Ramazan.
Addressing the floor of the Lower House on Monday, he said that the Israeli airstrikes pummeled the Gaza strip and destroyed hundreds of homes.
“I will not speak on the government s tactics against the Opposition as the lawmakers had gathered to voice their concerns against Israel s attacks on Palestine,” he said.
Shehbaz Sharif said that the Israeli army has been oppressing the Palestinians since 1948, adding that the report by the human rights organization on Israeli atrocities in Palestine is a good thing.
He said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also been occupying Kashmir.
The opposition leader appealed Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi to lead from the front to stop Israeli atrocities.
He also regretted Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s statement that Article 370 is an internal matter of India and said that he didn’t expect such statement from the country’s foreign minister.
