The ITUC-Asia Pacific strongly condemns all acts of violence against Palestinians and Israeli peoples that resulted in casualties and injuries to many civilians.
We are calling for an immediate cease-fire and a focus on the entry and an increase of humanitarian aid for affected civilians.
We are calling for an immediate release of all hostages and their safety must be ensured.
We urge all parties and the international community to strive together for peace. We also demand the full implementation of UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338, which will end the occupation and are fundamental to the achievement of a just and lasting peace. These resolutions must guarantee the realisation of a two-state solution.
