In his Twitter post, he shared the quote of Noam Chomsky from one of his old articles on the Palestinian-Israel conflict. “You take my water, burn my olive trees, destroy my house, take my job, steal my land, imprison my father, kill my mother, bombard my country, starve us all, humiliate us all, but I am to blame: I shot a rocket back,” reads the statement.
His tweet has garnered thousands of multiple re-shares on Twitter within an hour. This is his second tweet during the ongoing bout of escalation between Israel and Palestine.
Three days ago, he had strongly condemned the use of force on Palestinian and violence on Palestinians worshipping in Masjid Al Aqsa. He urged the international community to take notice of the Israeli aggression and protect the rights of Palestinians and support them in achieving freedom.

Int community must take immed action to protect Palestinians & their legitimate rights,” said PM Imran Khan in his tweet earlier.

The recent bout of bloodshed and violence in Gaza and Palestine has caused fear in the international community that things may spiral out of control. So far, 35 Palestinians have lost their lives and hundreds of them have suffered injuries following the bombing of Israel in Gaza.
