Statement on Israel-Palestine conflict

The team at Mor Media Charity are deeply concerned by the escalation of violence in the occupied Palestinian territory of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Israel. This has resulted in an unacceptable loss of life — and we urge all parties, including the international community, to work to stop the bloodshed. We are calling on the UK government to live up to its obligations under international law and use every channel in its power to call for immediate de-escalation and an immediate ceasefire.


We oppose all acts of violence. The attack on Israeli civilians by Hamas was horrific. The indiscriminate, disproportionate response by Israel against Palestinians, including bombarding Gaza and prohibiting the provision of food, water and electricity into the occupied territory, is creating an unprecedented humanitarian crisis that is depleting an already under-resourced health system and displacing civilians constantly seeking shelter.  The leaders of the international community have stood by and not used their leverage and influence with Israel to ensure that Israel abides by UN Security Council resolutions that demand a permanent end to the occupation of Palestinian lands.


We felt it was important, at this critical moment, to have a statement on the Israel-Palestine Conflict where we call for an end to violence, for all parties to respect their obligations under international human rights and humanitarian law, and demand that the root causes of this conflict finally be addressed and resolved. You can help by supporting Medical Aid for Palestinians  , which is responding to the current emergency.
