Islamabad, Jan.12 (ANI): Pakistan’’s National Assembly on Monday passed a unanimous resolution against Israel’’s attacks on the Gaza Strip in a bid to neutralise the militant group Hamas, which has been firing rockets into Israel.
A Geo News report said that the parliamentarians crossed party lines to strongly condemned the Israeli aggression in Gaza and called on all concerned international bodies to adopt binding resolutions for an immediate stop to the aggression.
The resolution was passed as Israeli forces were reported to be moving slowly into Gaza’’s most densely populated areas. They are continuing air and ground attacks on Hamas militants inspite of the fact that the death toll has crossed the 900 mark.
Some reservists are in action on the ground, but the army denied escalating the war to a “third phase” - an all-out push on Gaza City and other towns.
Fewer air strikes were carried out overnight - 12 compared with as many as 60 on previous nights.
At least nine rockets or mortars were fired on Israel from Gaza, the BBC reported.
Israeli spokesman Mark Regev was quoted as saying that the Hamas’’s military machine was taking “serious punishment” and Israel was “advancing towards the end game”. (ANI)
