Joint Statement on the Armed Assault on Ships to Gaza


Prof. Ernesto Kahan, MD – TRANSCEND Media Service

The Palestinian Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (PPPNW) and the Israeli Physicians for Peace and the Preservation of the Environment (IPPPE), affiliates of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, agree as follows:

Our two organizations condemn the armed assault in international waters on ships carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza and deplore the resulting loss of lives. As physicians on both sides, we agree that the health of the population of Gaza is of deep concern and that medical aid is urgently needed. We are calling for an international inquiry into this incident, and an immediate end to the blockade of Gaza. We call upon the Israeli and the Palestinian leaders to enter into serious negotiations in goodwill to find a nonviolent, peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Join the BDS-Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions campaign to protest the Israeli barbaric siege of Gaza, illegal occupation of the Palestine nation, the apartheid wall, and its inhuman and degrading treatment of the Palestinian people: DON’T BUY products whose BARCODE starts with 729, which indicates that it is produced in Israel. DO YOUR PART! MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

7 2 9: BOYCOTT!
