ISLAMABAD Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has strongly condemned the assault by the Israeli defence forces on a Gaza-bound humanitarian aid flotilla, which has resulted in the killing of members of this humanitarian mission. The Prime Minister said that this unwarranted and unprovoked military action by Israel against a humanitarian mission constituted a flagrant violation of international law and norms and values of humanity. Pakistan, he said, expects the international community to take cognisance of this brutal act and ensure the safety and security of persons including Pakistani nationals who were on this humanitarian mission. Pakistan, he added, is in contact with all friendly states in this regard. He said that Pakistan has also approached the Secretary Generals of the OIC and UN as well as the International Committee of the Red Cross.
