The embassy of the State of Palestine in Hungary deeply regrets the recent remarks by H.E. Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó regarding the escalating aggression by Israel, the occupying Power, in Occupied Palestine.
On May 1st, Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) attacked peaceful Christian worshipers and denied them their basic right to celebrate the Holy Fire ceremony, at the Sepulchre Church in Jerusalem. One week ago, until now, IOF assaulted residents and solidarity protesters who rejected occupation’s plans to evict Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood. Few days ago, IOF raided Al-Aqsa Mosque, surrounded and indiscriminately fired at defenceless worshippers and bystanders, injuring hundreds.
