The Embassy of the State of Palestine in Zimbabwe has commended Amnesty International for a report that calls for the protection of the Palestine people from Israeli hostility.

In a statement, Ambassador of the State of Palestine to Zimbabwe Mr Tamer Almassri said the recent report titled “Israel’s Apartheid Against Palestinians: Cruel System of Domination and Crime Against Humanity” exposes the ill-treatment of Palestinians.

“Amnesty International joins several other global human rights organisations including those in Israel in denouncing Israel’s treatment of the Palestinian people as an institutionalised apartheid reality,” he said.

“The apartheid state of Israel has created and maintains an institutionalised regime of systematic oppression and domination over Palestinians, which is enforced across Israel and occupied holy land of Palestine through reinforcing discriminatory laws, policies and practices, and, when seen as a totality, controls virtually every aspect of Palestinians’ lives and routinely violates their human rights.”

Ambassador Almassri urged the world to unite in condemning the acts by Israel.

“The ball is now in the court of politicians and government leaders around the world to seize the moment and take the necessary measures to end Israel’s apartheid system, settler colonialism and occupation.

“Failing to act now allows this Apartheid state of Israel to continue to violate international law and it amounts to complicity in one of the most serious crimes against humanity.”
