Four mass organisations of Vietnam have voiced their opposition to the use of force against civilians in the Gaza Strip, and urged the parties concerned to immediately end it and hold negotiations for a solution to the conflict.

In their joint statement issued on July 23, the Vietnam Committee for Solidarity with the Palestinian People, the Vietnam Committee for Solidarity and Cooperation with Asia, Africa and Latin America, the Vietnam Peace and Development Foundation and the Vietnam Peace Committee described the on-going fighting in Gaza as a violation of peace, security and human rights in the region and the world.

“We also call on all parties to abide by international law and cooperate with the international community for prompt restoration of peace and stability in the region,” they added.

The organisations expressed profound sympathies to the people of Gaza over their sufferings and losses, and reiterated their solidarity with and support for the legitimate national aspirations of the Palestinian people.

The statement also denounced the bloody conflict and violence that have killed nearly 600 and injured thousands, most of them women and children. More than 100,000 Palestinians have left their home due to escalating hostilities.-VNA
