The Jewish Association of Peru (AJP) condemned through a statement the attacks that the Israeli community has been receiving from terrorist Islamic Jihad and Hamas.
“More than 600 missiles have been fired at Israel since Saturday morning when this latest escalation of violence began,” they said in a press release, cited by Expreso.
They also expressed their “deep sorrow for the deaths and suffering of innocent civilians, men, women and children”, as well as their repudiation of the attacks, which they consider to be cowardly.
“These terrorist groups are responsible for endangering their own civilian population,” the statement continued.
It should be noted that millions of Israelis are in the firing range of missiles fired from Gaza, forcing the population to run permanently to the underground shelters to save their lives, Expreso informed.
The AJP also called for a dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians to achieve peace, harmony and security for both nations.
