Continued attacks by Israel on Palestinians condemned

The death toll is increasing as clashes spread across the West Bank.

The United Nations says thousands of Palestinian families have taken shelter at its schools in northern Gaza.

Many also remain buried under the rubble as air raids hit the Shati refugee camp.

Israel Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is promising to continue the attacks to restore calm to Israel.

Political commentators say the violence has also thwarted opposition parties attempts to unseat the Israeli leader.

Meanwhile, the Palestine Solidarity Alliance hosted a motorcade across various parts of Gauteng to call on government to break all relations with Israel.

The organisation has called for all freedom-loving people who value humanity to join its plea for the South African government to confront the conflict head on.

The motorcade began from Rose Park in Lenasia and from Marks Park in Emmarentia on Saturday afternoon, respectively.

The group held a rally at Mary Fitzgerald Square, Newtown.

The PSA’s Shereen Saloojee said a joint memorandum from South African civil society organisations would be handed over to government officials calling for breaking of all diplomatic and economic ties with apartheid Israel.

“We are demanding, in this memorandum, that the South African government takes a firm stand against apartheid Israel, and that the Israeli ambassador is expelled from South Africa. We demand that South Africa stands with the International Criminal Court against apartheid Israel.”

On Wednesday, demonstrators marched on Parliament in Cape Town.

They called for the South African government to take a decisive stance on the ongoing violence, which has escalated in recent days.

Meanwhile, the department of international relations and cooperation has warned against the attacks in the region, especially on women, children and the elderly – calling it unjust and shameful.

Earlier on Saturday, the South African government condemned the escalating violence between Israel and Palestine.
