Motion text

That this House notes that once again Palestine's Gaza region has come under attack by the Israeli Defence Force; further notes that in this wholly unequal cycle of violence 490 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed by Israel since the end of Operation Cast Lead in 2009, and three Israelis; further notes that in this current attack Defence 4 Children International Palestine report that eight children have been killed and Palestinian writer and health worker, Mona Elfarra, reports the, not unusual, targeting of health centres including the European Hospital East of Khan Younis where many were both suffering and sheltering; and calls on the Government to do everything within its power to bring about an end to the collective punishment of Palestinans and the occupation that is a virtual death sentence for them.

COLLECTIVE PUNISHMENT OF PALESTINIANS (Amendment 1)
leave out from 'House' to end and add 'notes that after 13 years of Hamas rocket attacks on Israeli civilians and as many as 600 rockets fired in 2014 alone, Israel is compelled to defend itself; further notes that Israel does its utmost to protect civilian life by sending warning messages and launching precision guided missile attacks; further notes that it is Hamas that cynically locates its terrorist infrastructure deep in civilian areas; and supports the UK Government's strong condemnation of the appalling attacks being carried out by Hamas against Israeli civilians.'.
