Arab League Condemns Crimes of Israeli Occupation Forces against Palestinians

Cairo, 15 Dzulhijjah 1437/17 September 2016 (MINA) – The Arab League on Saturday condemned the crimes committed by the Israeli occupation government, the last of which was the execution of three Palestinians, “in cold blood” on Friday in the cities of Al-Quds and Al-Khalil, KUNA reporting.

Assistant Secretary General for Palestine and the occupied Arab territories Ambassador Saeed Abu Ali said in a statement that the international community and its institutions concerned, chiefly the Security Council, must bear their responsibilities in putting an urgent and final end for these field executions, practices and grave violations which run counter to international legitimacy and laws.

Abu Ali stressed the need to provide the necessary protection for the Palestinian people as a result of the seriousness of the current situation and to enable the Palestinian people to exercise freedom and independence.

He noted that the continuation of the Israeli occupation authorities in committing a series of systematic escalation of these heinous crimes and killings committed by the Israeli army and settlers against the Palestinian people coincide with the annual 34th anniversary of Sabra and Shatila massacre.

He explained that this confirms that the Israeli government continues in its escalation policy and ignores political and diplomatic efforts aimed at coming out of the current political stalemate due to the intransigent positions of the Israeli government. T/R07/R01)
