Palestinian ambassador to Germany applauds demonstrators for support

The representative of the Palestinian Authority in Germany, Laith Arafeh, has thanked pro-Palestinian demonstrators for their support.

He pointed out that “more than 10,000 Palestinian civilians have now been killed – including 4,000 children and 3,000 women.”

Arafeh warned that anyone who supported a “continuation of aggression” was on the wrong side of history.

“It is very regrettable that calls for justice and a ceasefire continue to be denigrated and falsely labelled as support for terrorism,” said Arafeh’s statement, which was made available to dpa in Berlin.

“We are grateful to the tens of thousands who have raised their voices for justice and freedom in Palestine,” Arafeh wrote.

Recently, there had been sharp criticism in Germany of the fact that Islamists were among the demonstrators, as was the case at a demonstration in the western city of Essen.

According to Israeli military sources, at least 240 hostages were taken to the Gaza Strip during the attack on Israel by Islamist Hamas on October 7. More than 1,400 people died in the attack and in the days that followed. In response, Israel sealed off the Gaza Strip and launched massive air and ground attacks.
