Theresa May urged to back UN’s call for an independent international inquiry into firing of ‘live ammunition into crowds of unarmed civilians’
In a message read out at a demonstration outside Downing Street, the Labour leader demanded that Theresa May support the United Nation’s call for an independent international inquiry.
Britain should also consider stopping the sale of arms to Israel that “could be used in violation of international law”, he said.
Mr Corbyn spoke out after at least nine more Palestinians were killed, and hundreds more injured, by Israeli gunfire, some reportedly shot in the head or upper body.
The latest deaths came a week after 18 Palestinians lost their lives when Israeli soldiers opened fire at similar demonstrations in support of a “right to return” to land lost to Israel in 1948.
