Maldives continues to strongly condemn the violent attacks carried out by Israeli forces in the West Bank City of Jenin.
The government issued a statement on Wednesday, condemning the violent attacks in Jenin which have led to more than 10 fatalities, so far.
Several other innocent civilians were injured in the hostile attacks.
The people of Maldives join the government in extending heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims of the Israeli aggression and conveyed sincere wishes for the swift recovery of the injured victims.
The government expressed deep concern by the disproportionate and excessive use of force by the Israeli forces on unarmed civilians including women and children in the occupied Palestinian territories.
In its statement, the government also reiterated its resilient position that finding long-lasting peace in the Middle East, rests with reaching a two-state solution, with the establishment of an independent and sovereign state of Palestine, based on the pre-1967 borders and with East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.
The government and people of Maldives stand in firm solidarity with the people of Palestine in their legitimate struggle for self-determination.
Reuters reported that at least 12 have been confirmed dead in the Israeli raid, with 500 families having been evacuated from Jenin so far.
Reuters reported that 12 Palestinians out of which at least five were fighters, and one Israeli soldier had been killed. The operation, which the army said was aimed at destroying militant infrastructure and weapons in the Jenin refugee camp, was launched with a drone strike on Monday, and over 1,000 troops were deployed.
Israeli forces withdrew from Jenin on Tuesday following one of their biggest military operations in the occupied West Bank for years.
