Conflict 'result of Israel's occupation' says Palestine Solidarity Network Aotearoa

From Morning Report, 8:44 am on 9 October 2023

Palestine Solidarity Network Aotearoa says Aotearoa bears some responsibility for the loss of life of Palestinians and Israelis.

Israeli and Hamas fighters continue to clash after a shock mass assault on Israeli territory over the weekend.

National chair John Minto says western countries such as New Zealand have failed for decades to hold Israel to account for crimes against the Palestinian people.

He says the conflict is a result of Israel's occupation of the Gaza Strip.

Minto spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
