An official statement by the Congress party stressed on the process of “dialogue and negotiations” to resolve the conflict between Israel and Palestine.

“The Indian National Congress has always believed that the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people for a life of self-respect, equality and dignity must be fulfilled only through a process of dialogue and negotiations while ensuring the legitimate national security interests of the Israeli people. Violence of any type never provides a solution and must stop,” an X (formerly Twitter) post by Congress said.

Hamas launched a surprise attack on Israel via land, sea and air routes. Israeli forces fought hundreds of Hamas terrorists through the night at over 20 Israel locations, including two where hostages were being held by the gunmen, the army said. In response attack by Israel, over 313 Gazans have been killed.

Meanwhile, Israel’s security cabinet voted to invoke Article 40 Aleph, an official declaration of war for the first time since the Yom Kippur War 50 years ago.

“Last night, the Security Cabinet approved the war situation and, to this end, the taking of significant military steps, as per Article 40 of Basic Law,” an official statement said.
