Islamabad, 14 October 2023 (TDI): Nader Al-Turk, the Deputy Head of Palestine in Pakistan, has expressed profound gratitude towards the people, government, and political parties of Pakistan for their unwavering support for Palestine and its people.

In a Facebook post, Al-Turk conveyed his hope that Pakistan, along with the broader Islamic world, will join forces to harness their political and diplomatic influence.

The goal is to bring an end to Israeli aggression, particularly the ongoing targeting of civilians in the Gaza Strip, and to kindle hope among the younger generations for a future characterized by peace, stability, and justice.

The Palestinian Deputy Head’s message underscored the significance of ending the Israeli occupation and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, with its capital in Jerusalem.

Additionally, he highlighted the critical issue of the return of Palestinian refugees, an essential component of the peace and stability that the region yearns for.

Pakistan’s consistent support for Palestine, both at the governmental and popular levels, is a testament to the enduring bond between the two nations.

The call for joint action seeks to leverage the political and diplomatic power of the Islamic world to influence the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict positively.
