Palestine General Federation of Trade Unions

The Palestine General Federation of Trade Unions was shocked by the savage barbarian raids by Israeli F16 jets which destroyed and demolished completely the PGFTU Folk house in Gaza city at midnight, Thursday, 28th February, 2008 by three heavy rockets. The neighborhood houses and property were badly damaged and thirteen people were injured. This house was constructed by LO-Norwegian funds.”



“Israel’s collective punishment of the people of Gaza is a clear breach of international humanitarian law and the Fourth Geneva Convention. It is, in effect, a war crime and Israel must be held to account. It is not sufficient for the International communities and the UN to express ‘concern’. The International Community and UN must take firm and immediate action to stop this catastrophe.” Gaza needs action not talks to stop Israeli aggression. We call for an appropriate and effective response from the international trade unions and the ILO to put pressure on Israel military army to compel Israel to compensate PGFTU for the destruction of the Folk House in Gaza.”
