PFLP Supports Catalan City Of Barcelona’s Decision To Cut Diplomatic Ties With Israeli Government

Ramallah, February 9, 2023: The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine welcomed today, the decision of the Catalan city of Barcelona for temporarily suspending its relations with Israel, due to its crimes in the occupied territories of Palestine.

This position reflects the popular will to reject violent practices by the Israeli forces against our people, the Marxist-Leninist formation stated in a dispatch.

In a letter addressed to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Barcelona’s mayor Ada Colau announced the temporary suspension of its institutional relations with Israel “until the authorities put an end to the systematic violation of human rights against the Palestinians.”

The move includes cutting the twinning of the Catalan city with Tel Aviv until further notice. “Barcelona has become the first city council to suspend ties with apartheid Tel Aviv in solidarity with the Palestinian people,” the group wrote on its Twitter account.
