Protesting Israeli war on Gaza, French city freezes twinning with Safed

SHAFAQNA (International Shia News Association)-The City Council of Lille froze the French municipality’s twinning agreement with Safed, northern 48 occupied Palestine, protesting against Israeli recent aggression on Gaza.

Israel Hayom’s reporter Danny Brenner confirmed that the French municipality’s decision came in protest against Israeli practices in the occupied territories.

The vote is one of several “initiatives taken notably by the European Parliament to call for a freezing of the privileged agreements with Israel in order to pressure the government and accelerate the resolution of the conflict,” said council member Marie-Pierre Bresson of the Green Party.
