Israel-Gaza Border Protests

Along with many of my constituents, I am shocked and appalled by the further use of live fire by Israeli forces, on protesters along the Gaza-Israel border, killing at least 9 people and injuring many more.

These protests mark the beginning of a six-week demonstration against the displacement of Palestinians from the territory, who have suffered countless abuses of their rights over the last several decades. In addition to rights violations, many have had to live in extremely poor conditions and have had limited access to healthcare due to crippling fuel shortages and travel restrictions preventing those seeking medical assistance from accessing it.

The actions taken by Israeli forces against the protesters are immoral and unacceptable, and should be met with complete condemnation from the international community.
