APLA condemns shooting attack on the Deir al-Ghusun Municipality

The Association of Palestinian Local Authorities (APLA) condemns the shooting attack on the Deir al-Ghusun Municipality in this critical security situation, which Palestinian’s experience throughout the homeland.

 

Like all local government units (LGUs) across Palestine, the Deir al-Ghusun Municipality continues to operate under all circumstances to support and promote the perseverance of its community. The current stage is sensitive and serious. As individuals, groups, and institutions, we are obliged to assume our responsibilities towards Palestine and put the national interest above any narrow interests and respect the rule of law.

 

APLA urges security agencies to confront such assaults, which have recurred in many communities and targeted LGUs. APLA confirms its support to the position of the Deir al-Ghusun Municipality and stands by all Palestinian LGU mayors, councillors, and executive staff. In addition to enforcing the law, LGUs need to play their roles at this critical stage and bear relevant national responsibilities, particularly preserving community safety and protecting the national project.
