Resolution on Palestine
Adopted at the 20th Congress of the CPI(M), Kozhikode, April 4-9, 2012
This 20th Congress of the CPI(M) condemns Israel’s continuing occupation of Palestinian territories in complete violation of international law and many United Nations resolutions. The brutal siege of Gaza, arbitrary arrests and the detention of thousands of Palestinians in West Bank and Israel without trials, targeted assassinations etc. show Israel’s total contempt for international law. The Zionist government has been fully backed and supported by the US government in all its illegal actions.
