PWWSD Statement - Gazan Peaceful March

03 Apr 2018

The Palestinian Working Woman Society for Development (PWWSD) condemns the attack conducted by the Israeli forces on Friday 30 March 2018, the day that marks the Land Day. Tens of thousands of Palestinians, mostly refugees, in the Gaza Strip decided to march peacefully towards the borders of historic Palestine, from which they were uprooted during AlNakba in 1948. They demanded their Right to Return in accordance to UN Resolution 194, in addition to inquire to break the siege on Gaza Strip, imposed by the Israeli military colonialist occupation for longer than 10 years.

In return, the illegal Israeli forces conducted indiscriminate and systematic use of lethal force against the peaceful march, which resulted in killing 17 Palestinian men, women and children, and 1479 injuries.
