Bond has released a statement condemning the military offensives and attacks in Israel and the Gaza Strip over the past few days:
The escalation of violence in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory is extremely distressing and our thoughts are with the ordinary citizens that are bearing the brunt of this crisis. Our member organisations and their partners are closely monitoring the humanitarian situation in the region. Safe passage of humanitarian assistance must be granted for the people who need it.
