Following the European Parliament's approval of a resolution on the Goldstone report on the war on Gaza, GUE/NGL MEP Kyriacos Triantaphyllides welcomed Parliament's acknowledgment of Israeli violations of international law.

"The approval of the joint resolution on the implementation of the Goldstone report signals the impact of the report on the Middle East Peace Process. For the first time, a resolution voted in the European Parliament acknowledges Israeli's violations of international humanitarian law" he said.

The Goldstone Report is strong evidence that Israeli forces committed violations of international humanitarian law during 2008's military operations in the Palestinian territories. The GUE/NGL group welcomes the report and we call for the immediate adoption of its findings by EU Member States and the implementation of its recommendations. We also demand that no upgrading of EU – Israel Association Agreement is conceded given the violations committed by Israel.
