NEW DELHI — Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Friday said that the cycle of bloodshed and violence did not stop even after the killing of 7,000 people in Gaza.
She said that out of these 7,000 people, 3,000 were innocent children.
“Even after the killing of 7,000 people in Gaza, the cycle of bloodshed and violence did not stop. Out of these 7,000 people, 3,000 were innocent children,” Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said in a post in Hindi on X (formerly Twitter).
She asserted that there is no international law which has not been violated.
“There is no such dignity which has not been violated. There is no such rule which has not been flouted,” the Congress leader said.
“When will humanity wake up? After losing so many lives. After sacrificing so many children. Is the consciousness of being human left? Did it ever exist?” Priyanka Gandhi asked.
Her remarks came a day after Gaza released the name of 7,000 people who died in the Israel Hamas war.
Fighting in the Gaza Strip has entered day 21 after Hamas members launched a surprise attack on Israel, killing at least 1,400 people on October 7.
Since the October 7 Hamas attack, Gaza’s health ministry has said that Israel’s retaliatory bombardments have killed more than 7,000 Palestinians. — (IANS)
