    ISLAMABAD: Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has announced Friday as a day of mourning to show solidarity with people of Gaza, his office said in a statement on Thursday.

    “Moreover, the Prime Minister has ordered to contribute one million dollars in UN flash appeal for Gaza Palestinians,” it said.

    Pakistan demands ‘humanitarian pause’ in Gaza
    Earlier today, Pakistan also called for an immediate end to the blockade of Gaza to allow humanitarian relief to reach Palestinians as the death toll in the besieged territory rose to more than 740.

    The appeal came a day after Pakistan voted along with other UN Human Rights Council members to launch a probe into Israel's offensive in the territory, with rights chief Navi Pillay saying the Jewish state's military actions could amount to war crimes.

    The 47-member council backed a Palestinian-drafted resolution by 29 votes, with Arab and fellow Muslim countries joined by China and Russia, plus Latin American and African nations. The United States was the sole member to vote against the resolution while the European countries abstained.

    “The blockade of Gaza must be ended in order to allow access of any humanitarian assistance,” Pakistan's most senior foreign office bureaucrat Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry told a press briefing.

    “And that is why even in the UN Security Council and later in UN Human Rights Council we called for humanitarian pauses,” Chaudhry said.

    “Unless this blockade is lifted we cannot send any relief assistance,” he continued.

    Some 746 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza since Israel launched a military operation to halt rocket fire from the besieged territory on July 8.

    Chaudhry said the Israeli military offensive had led to the killings in Gaza of “innocent non-combatant and unarmed Palestinians including women and children.”

    “We have spoken clearly and unambiguously in the United Nations Security Council yesterday and call for an end to hostilities and to revive the peace talks.”

    He said Pakistan was also actively working with Muslim and like-minded countries to secure humanitarian access to those who are badly wounded and stranded in the shelters.

    “It is important that the blockade of Gaza is ended, its borders opened and the Palestinian prisoners released,” Chaudhry said.

    The United Nations said on Wednesday that three quarters of those killed were civilians and one third of those were children – the equivalent of one child killed each hour over the previous two days.

    Situated on the Mediterranean coast, flanking Israel and Egypt, the Gaza Strip is home to 1.7 million Palestinians who live in an area stretching just 362 square kilometres (140 square miles), making it one of the most densely-populated territories on the planet.

    Israel began a blockade on Gaza in 2007 following the election of Hamas a year earlier and maintains it is necessary to limit Palestinian rocket attacks.

    And what we have here is an example of the baki way of thought. More muslims are being systematically slaughtered in Iraq right now, and that too in far more brutal ways, think beheadings, drive by shootings, executions in front of female family members, I have even seen women being beheaded.

    But NO! They are more worried about Israel because it is non-muslims killing muslims.

    A real muslim will not kill another muslim, and if they do, we will ignore it. Just like above.

    Pakis are killing INNOCENT MUSLIMS in it's own country where millions are displaced but no Mourning for them.

    60,000 Muslims are killed by Pakis since WOT.

    Pakis killed 3 Million Bangladeshi Muslims but no remorse.
    Pakis killed 1 Lakh Kashmiri Muslims but no remorse.

    But hey now Israel is a evil because they can't even defend themselves by enemies who are 100 times their population.
