ISLAMABAD: Representatives of journalist bodies and civil society on Tuesday condemned Israeli terrorism and atrocities against Palestinians and bombardment on civilian residential centres and media houses.
Speaking at rallies held on a call of the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ), they urged the international community to immediately stop the Zionist regime’s terrorism.
The journalists unions staged demonstrations in Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar, Quetta, Faisalabad, Bahawalpur, Sukkur, Abbottabad, Rahim Yar Khan, Gujranwala and Multan.
Besides journalists, representatives of civil society, lawyers and people from different walks of life attended the rallies and termed Israeli brutalities acts of barbarism and terrorism.
“Condemnation resolutions are not enough and will not serve the purpose. Muslim world must pressure Israel to stop violence against innocent civilians in Palestine,” said PFUJ president Shehzada Zulfiqar while addressing a rally in Quetta.
