As Israeli aerial bombardment of the besieged Gaza Strip continues, Pakistan on Friday put its weight behind a proposal to deploy a protection force in Palestine, Anadolu reports.
“We need to consider ways to prevent a recurrence of this slaughter,” Foreign Minister Munir Akram told the UN General Assembly.
The foreign ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation “have proposed deployment of a protection force to safeguard Palestinian civilians in the Gaza and perhaps also in the West Bank,” he said.
“We should give serious consideration” to the proposal, Akram told the world body.
“The Israeli killing machine must be stopped in Gaza and the West Bank.”
