Nawaz announces day of mourning to show solidarity with Palestinians

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced Friday as a day of mourning to show solidarity with people of Gaza, his office said in a statement.

“Moreover, the Prime Minister has ordered to contribute one million dollars in UN flash appeal for Gaza Palestinians,” it said.

Pakistan flag will fly on half mast on the day of mourning.

The United Nations said on Wednesday that three quarters of those killed were civilians and one third of those were children — the equivalent of one child killed each hour over the previous two days.
