Tue, 06/01/2021

We, the members of the Lebanon Feminist Civil Society Platform[1] and who are the signatories to this statement have been following with grave concern the recent and repeated escalation of violence against Palestinians residing in Gaza and other parts of the Occupied Palestinian Territories by the Israeli occupation forces.
