Jeremy Corbyn highlights Jenin raid during anti-boycott bill reading

“It’s impossible to use any kind of weaponry against the population there without targeting civilians.”

British MP Jeremy Corbyn condemned the Israeli military operation on Jenin during his speech in a parliamentary debate on Monday.

The debate was being held at the Commons to discuss the “anti-boycott bill” in its second reading. The bill aims to prevent the boycott of foreign countries by public groups and organisations in the UK, highlighting in particular the boycott of Israel.

Israel was accused of committing a war crime after carrying out a large-scale military operation against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin in the early hours of Monday, killing at least 10 Palestinians.
