At a protest in Haifa, Joint List Chairman MK Ayman Odeh (Hadash) said: “A round [of fighting] brings another round, more kills and more resistance. The circle of horror must end. We came out to protest together for the only way that will benefit both nations – genuine negotiations to end the occupation, found a Palestinian state alongside Israel, and a just peace.
communist party of israel General Secretary Adel Amer, MP Aida Touma-Sliman, MP Ofer Cassif (Joint List) and former MP Dov Khenin also joined the protests. Touma-Sliman said, “Stop the attack on Gaza! Continuing the war on Gaza will only increase suffering and loss. “An immediate ceasefire is needed – those who started it with a political decision should end it with a political decision. Only a diplomatic solution and an end to the occupation and the siege will bring real security,” she said.
On Friday and earlier Saturday, Hadash lawmakers condemned Israel’s decision to launch the operation. Deputy Cassif (Common List), wrote on Twitter: “The barter attack – blood for votes. The cynical use of violence by Lapid and Gantz in the hope of securing more mandates in the elections will only lead to a sea of tears and blood, in the Gaza ghetto, where two million people have been imprisoned since. 15 years, and also in Israel”. “The attack has already claimed the life of 5-year-old Alaa Kadum. Sufficient! Stop the fire now! “, he wrote.
