TÜBA expresses deep concern over the recent tragic events in Palestine, particularly the grave violations of international law and human rights by the Israeli government through its occupation and attacks. We are appalled by the attacks on civilian populations and civil institutions, notably the targeting of a civilian healthcare facility on October 17, 2023. Israel persists in its occupation and attacks in Palestinian territories, disregarding all legal norms and United Nations Security Council resolutions. TÜBA vehemently condemns this unlawful occupation and ceaseless aggression.
