Tun Mahathir Urges People To Donate To Palestinians

 Malaysians should extend help, even in a small way, to ease the pain of Palestinians who are under siege by Israel military, said former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

He said the Perdana Global Peace Foundation had set up a fund, which could be accessed via the Internet, to enable the public to donate to the people of Gaza, Palestine.

"To date, we've collected RM500,000 and we accept any amount, even RM1," he told reporters after launching a book entitled "TPPA (Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement): Malaysia is not for Sale" authored by the Malay Economic Action Council at Karangkraf here Friday.

Dr Mahathir, who is also Perdana Global Peace Foundation president, said the foundation would seek help from Palestine's neighbours to take the aid, including money and medicines, to the Palestinians.

At least 98 Palestinians have been killed since Israel launched its "Operation Protective Edge" on Tuesday.

Present were Dr Mahathir's wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali and Malay Economic Action Council CEO Mohd Nizam Mahshar.
