Colombo, March 2 (Daily Mirror)- Sri Lanka is deeply troubled over the death of over a hundred people who were waiting to receive aid in Gaza and joined the call for investigations into the incident, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

The Ministry said the latest incident underscores the immediate need to end the blockade imposed on Gaza, depriving its civilian population, including women and children, of access to basic necessities such as food, water, medicine, electricity and fuel.

"Sri Lanka reiterates its call for an immediate ceasefire and unrestricted humanitarian access to Gaza to alleviate the suffering of civilians.

The Sri Lanka Government approved the establishment of the 'Children of Gaza Fund,' a compassionate initiative proposed by the President aimed at providing assistance to the victims in Gaza and to donate USD one million through UN agencies to provide much-needed support to the victims of Gaza.

Sri Lanka joins the global calls for a sustainable political resolution to the conflict and emphasizes the establishment of an independent and sovereign State of Palestine, based on the borders of 1967, in line with relevant UN resolutions, as well as ensuring the security of Israel," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

    Absurd. Best not to poke our nose where it doesn't belong, especially when we are going around the world with a begging bowl.

    While this is a truly sad situation, it is also very hypocritical of the Sri Lankan government to be all so concerned about muslims when they are ill treated and businesses destroyed in Sri Lanka. I wonder, has any compensation been made, apologies rendered, or anyone held accountable for those atrocities? This is what's called vadi-bana (with all due respect to the veddas)
