MacAskill urges UK Government to seek an immediate ceasefire and justice for the Palestinian people

ALBA Party Deputy Leader, Kenny MacAskill, has urged the UK Government to seek an immediate ceasefire and justice for the Palestinian people. 

Speaking in the House of Commons, MacAskill asked the Foreign Secretary:

"Fourteen hundred years on from Cáin Adomnáin, the law of the innocents to protect women and children in conflict, both the terror of Hamas and the utterly disproportionate and illegal response by Israel stain our modern world. Rather than the supine acceptance of Israeli-US policy, will the Secretary of State instead heed the wise counsel of President Higgins of Ireland and seek both an immediate ceasefire and justice for the Palestinian people?"
