Zelensky’s Message to International Community
Zelensky asks the nations of the world to take appropriate steps to resolve this conflict, defend the unity of the world and stop human rights violations in Gaza. He asks the nation to decide on how they will defend international laws, he requests them to not stand aside, close their eyes or ignore when terror tries to break the unity and take over.
He calls for a common fight against terrorism and the need to work together to keep the situation under control so that terrorism has no chance to take over the peace, freedom, and unity of the world. He said we must defend international laws and human rights against attempts by terrorists to seize power.

He reminds the world what the terrorists did in Israel, Thousands of missiles against peaceful cities, shooting people in cars on the roads – men, women, children – no one was spared.
Moreover, the terrorists were proud of what they did and they gave the world footage of their atrocities. He says the Middle East is a matter of fundamental concern. We can see the video available on social media. The whole world is in shock seeing the pain terrorists are causing to Gaza people. The present estimates are that Hamas launched more than 5,000 rockets killing more than 2,500 people and causing great casualties. Moreover, Israel has completely blocked the Gaza Strip, stopping the supply of food, water, and electricity.
The other nation needs to take a strong stand in this matter and contribute their efforts to stop this devastating conflict, there is an urgent need to step up peace talks and negotiations between both nations, we can’t ignore such violation of human rights for long, people in these areas have become vulnerable to changing international context and sudden attacks.
