Massacre of Palestinian Civilians in Beit Hanoun

October 2006

The National Association of British Arabs deplores the unprovoked attack and massacre of 18 Palestinian civilians, primarily women and children, in Beit Hanoun today. This is only the latest in a week-long onslaught on the Gaza Strip today which has left many dead and injured. 

The lack of any public outcry or condemnation from the British Government is shameful.

NABA reiterates its previous call for all British Arabs to lobby their MPs to demand that our government implement immediate punitive economic sanctions against the Israeli regime and issue an immediate condemnation of the ruthless and indiscriminate actions of the Israeli government.
