PETALING JAYA – Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has hit out at Israel over the deaths of 60 Palestinian protesters at the hands of Israeli forces at the Gaza border on Monday.
“We are, of course, against killing people on the part of Israel. We sympathise with the Palestinians and we’re against Israel,” he said.
He spoke to reporters after chairing a meeting of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) Presidential Council here today. Dr Mahathir is PH chairman.
Dr Mahathir said Malaysia was against the shifting of the United States embassy to Jerusalem.
It was reported that the Palestinians were protesting against the controversial relocation of the mission from Tel Aviv when Israeli troops fired on them. – BERNAMA
