Please share the word, their stories in their honour so their sacrifices won’t be forgotten. Nor the memories, their deaths, nor the crimes that killed them.
Do not forget them and the mourning families in your prayers…
We ask you: How many more dead corpses of Palestinians, peace-activists or humanitarian convoy members does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime and massacres are being stopped once and for all.
