AIJAC condemns targeting of Israeli civilians by Palestinian Islamic Jihad

August 7, 2022 | AIJAC

The Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) today condemned the continued targeting of Israeli civilians by the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). PIJ, widely proscribed as a terrorist group, including by Australia, the US, Canada and the European Union, has fired more than 350 rockets at Israel since Friday, including more than 90 which have fallen inside the Gaza Strip. One of these fell on a house in Jabaliya in Gaza, killing seven, including four children, a tragedy the Palestinians are now trying to blame Israel for.

June 8, 2022 | AIJAC staff

It is completely unsurprising that this Commission has now issued a report – without visiting Israel or hearing the Israeli side of the story – saying the conflict is all Israel’s fault.
