AAP statement on the Gaza situation

We urge upon the Indian government to publicly call for a ceasefire in Gaza, allow doctors, medicines and all essential goods to get access into Gaza. Israel must compensate and pay reparation to the Palestinians for the extensive loss of civilian life and property.

We also call upon the government of India to support the call for an independent Palestine. These demands, specially for an independent Palestine are hugely important and both the Government and civil society must rise to support the Palestinian people and their struggle for justice, peace and independence.
