West News Wire: The Arab League Council has denounced Israeli crimes against Palestinians and requested that the downtrodden people be given international protection.
The Council condemned the massive Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people, which are classified as crimes against humanity and war crimes under international humanitarian law, and urged the international community to put into effect resolutions pertaining to the protection of Palestinian civilians, particularly UN Security Council Resolutions 904 (1994), 605 (1987), and 1020-RES/ES (201) on the Protection of the Palestinian civilian population.
It asked international organizations to take positive steps to protect Palestinians and create a workable system to carry out the UNGA Resolution.
The Council also called upon the UN Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities in terms of defending international security and peace, take immediate effective actions to halt all Israeli crimes and practices, and put an end to the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories.
It urged the International Criminal Court (ICC) to conduct a genuinely independent and impartial investigation into the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Israel, including settlement construction and expansion activities, extrajudicial killings of Palestinians and forcible displacement, and hold the perpetrators accountable.
Additionally, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) strongly condemned the Israeli massacre committed in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, which resulted in 11 deaths and 102 injuries among Palestinians.
“This heinous crime constitutes an extension of the record of Israeli crimes and organized state terrorism practiced against Palestinian people,” the OIC said in a statement.
It also blamed the occupying Israeli regime for all the consequences of the carnage, which should be investigated and its perpetrators brought to justice.
The OIC urged the UN Security Council to assume its responsibilities, and carry out its duties in connection with protection of Palestinians against the “continuous Israeli aggression.”
