    Gaza war: Palestinian Ambassador overwhelmed by support from Ghanaians

    The Palestinian Ambassador to Ghana, Mr. Abdalfatah A.K. Alsattari, says he is grateful to Ghanaians for what he has described as firm love and support in the fight of their struggles.

    He has valued the solidarity campaign and the fact that Ghanaians have held a series of demonstrations to kick against the bloodshed that has killed at least 37,296 people in Gaza.

    The war in Gaza allegedly has wiped out entire Palestinian families.

    According to the latest data from the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the World Health Organization and the Palestinian government as of June 16, Israeli attacks have destroyed or damaged more than half of Gaza’s homes.

    It has also killed not less than 37,296 people, 15,000 children, injured in excess of 85,197 people and had more than 10,000 people missing.

    This has raised concerns as people from different parts of the world have condemned the injustices and atrocities in Gaza.

    The Socialist Movement of Ghana (SMG) has organized a series of demonstrations across the country to condemn the attack and to further strengthen the calls for a ceasefire in Gaza.

    The demonstration was part of a “Global Day of Action for Palestine” aimed at bringing attention to the incessant bloodshed and the urgent need for a ceasefire and an end to the suffering in Gaza.

    Mr. Abdalfatah Alsattari, addressing the media during a similar solidarity campaign in support of Palestine in Accra expressed joy for the support from Ghanaians to the people in Gaza.

    He was grateful for the unwavering love and backing of the Ghanaian people.

    “My message towards the Ghanaian people is that, I want to say thank you so much to the government and the people for their solidarity message to my people in Gaza”.

    As you know, more than 37,000 people have been killed by the Israelis, of which 15,000 are children. However, most of these children are one month, two months and three months old and the Ghanaian people say we stand with you. So, I would like to say a big thank you, Mr. Abdalfatah Alsattari reiterated.

    He stressed that Ghanaians understand the international law for justice, hence the continued care and support in their struggle.

    Lastly, he commended and maintained that the Palestines in Gaza would be forever grateful to the government of Ghana.
