BEIRUT, Sunday, April 17, 2022 (WAFA) -The Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union condemned today the repeated storming of the al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli occupation forces and settlers.
In a statement, the pan-Arab organization also condemned the escalation of Israeli attacks against the Palestinian people during the holy month of Ramadan.
“The occupation authorities continue the brutal attacks and field executions and seek to change the facts on the ground and the legal and historical status quo of Jerusalem and the blessed al-Aqsa Mosque,” the union said, warning against the consequences of the continuation of these provocative barbaric acts, “which may push the entire region to dangerous repercussions.”
The union stressed the urgent need to implement international justice, protect Palestinian human rights, and the Palestinian people’s legitimate and legal right to live in security and dignity, calling on the international community, its parliaments, and active international organizations, to not remain silent about these daily crimes.
It also urged for providing protection for the Palestinian people and obligating the occupation authorities to implement the resolutions of international legitimacy, revive peace negotiations, and adhere to the two-state solution and the Arab Peace Initiative as the only way to put an end to this human tragedy.
The union expressed its firm position in support of the Palestinian people, stressing that the stability of the entire Arab region depends on the Palestinian people’s obtainment of their full inalienable rights, and the establishment of their independent and fully sovereign state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
