Washington: Expressing solidarity with Palestine amid the ongoing tensions with Israel, Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai on Wednesday called on the international community to protect the human rights of the Palestinians.
In a video shared on her Twitter account, Yousafzai said: “I want to express my solidarity with the Palestinian people. After decades of oppression against Palestinians, we cannot deny the asymmetry of power and brutality. From the Israeli airstrikes on women and children in Gaza to stun grenades targeting worshippers in Al-Aqsa, forced displacements, arrests, beatings and killings are a crime against humanity.”
“People around the world, including Muslims, Christians and Jews are calling on leaders to protect Palestinians’ human rights. I especially call for children’s safety. A Palestinian child should be sitting in a classroom, not in rubble. World leaders must act immediately,” she added.
