The United Development Party (PPP)
condemns Israeli’s attack on Mavi Marmara, a ship on a humanitarian
mission for the conflict in Gaza.
“This attack confirms that Israel
is an anti-humanity and anti-peace nation,” PPP Deputy Secretary General
Muhammad Romahurmuziy told The Jakarta
Post via email on Monday.
“PPP demands the government, in
this case the foreign affairs ministry, to take any bilateral or multilateral
approach to ensure the safety of Indonesian citizens who are aboard in the Mavi Marmara
ship,” he added.
“PPP also demands the foreign
affairs ministry to send an official protest to the United Nations on the
Israeli’s attack in Gaza. PPP also wants both the Israel and Palestine to put
more priority in dialogs to resolute their conflicts rather than violence,” he
Numerous international media
reported that the Israeli navy stormed the Mavi Marmara aid ship. Reports
also said that at least two people had been killed and 30 were wounded.
