Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina strongly condemns cruel attacks carried out by Israel on Palestine
Denouncing the recent Israeli attacks, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday told parliament that Bangladesh is always with the Palestinians and will continue to extend all kinds of aids to them.
"We’re always with Palestinian people. We extended all sorts of assistances to them in the past and are doing so today and will surely do that in the future," Sheikh Hasina said when she took part in the discussion on a condolence motion in the House.
Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury moved the condolence motion in the House in the beginning of the budget session of the 11th Parliament, aiming to express profound grief at the death of two sitting MPs, Abdul Matin Khasru and Aslamul Haque, one former minister, 11 ex-MPs, some noted dignitaries, and those who lost their lives to coronavirus both at home and abroad, in two recent waterway accidents in the country, the latest Israelis attacks on Palestine and Cyclone Yaas.

The prime minister strongly condemned the cruel attacks carried out by Israel. "What happened in Palestine is extremely inhumane. Children were crying and roaming around after losing their parents. It can't be tolerated," she said.
It is truly sad that the young children were injured and subjected to torture while they lost their parents, Sheikh Hasina said, adding that Israel carried out the attacks on Palestine.
Coming down heavily on international organizations, she questioned: “Some international organizations had raised their voice for humanity many times in the past, but why were many of them silent this time?”
The prime minister sought the salvation of the departed souls of those who were killed in the Israeli attacks.
Measures to check Covid
Mentioning that the government is taking all-out measures to check the second wave of coronavirus infection, the prime minister renewed her call for all to follow the health guidelines.
"The sudden surge in coronavirus infection is seen in our frontier districts. But we're taking measures there," she said, adding that the government is making all-out efforts to control the virus since its second wave hit the country.
"I would like to tell everyone to follow the health guidelines. It’s my call to all. We're taking all sorts of measures, including vaccination, so that everyone stays safe," said Sheikh Hasina.
