SocDem Asia Statement on the escalation of violence in the Middle East

SocDem Asia condemns the recent outbreak of violence in Palestine and Israel. We call for the immediate stop to the Israeli government and security forces attacks against Palestinian civilians and communities. We also demand an end to rocket attacks on Israeli territory. All military action on both sides must be stopped to peruse peace.
 
We also urge an immediate stop to forced eviction operations against Palestinian families in East Jerusalem and other areas. These actions constitute a violation of human rights.
 
Both sides must continue to pursue peace and reiterate their commitment to the Two-State solution and prior peace agreements.
 
We join international media and journalists’ groups in condemning the IDF's airstrike on an apartment building in Gaza City housing Al Jazeera, the Associated Press, and other media organizations' offices in the territory. Civilians should never be the target of military actions regardless of the military objective being pursued.
 
We urge an immediate end to all military actions and a return to the negotiating table. Both sides must work towards salvaging any chances of peace in the region. We stand with all progressive forces inside Palestine and Israel as they continue to fight for peace and human rights. Lastly, we call on athe leadership of all parties to desist from such actions that derail efforts to peace and security for both Israelis and Palestinians.#
