The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas launched Operation Al-Aqsa Storm on October 7, 2023, penetrating deep into the territories occupied by the Israeli regime.
The large-scale air, land, and sea strikes came in response to the recurring desecration of al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied al-Quds as well as Israel’s intensified atrocities towards Palestinians.
The regime responded with unconscionably inhumane and destructive airstrikes on civilian targets in the Gaza Strip. Palestinian women and children make up a considerable number of the thousands killed in the Israeli bombardments. Many more have also been injured.
The regime has also intensified the siege of Gaza, leaving the city, home to more than 2.3 million Palestinians, without water, electricity, and fuel.
Under these circumstances, the people of Africa have come out to condemn the war crimes of Israel in the strongest terms while expressing solidarity with the oppressed people of the land of Palestine.
