Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Maliki renewed his call to the UN Security Council to stop the continuing crimes of the Israeli occupation and its settlers against the Palestinians and to put an end to impunity for those responsible.
In a session of the UN Security Council on the “situation in the Middle East” reported by Wafa Agency, Al-Maliki stressed that the year 2021 was one of the bloodiest years for the Palestinians in more than a decade, as the crimes of the occupation affected children, women, the elderly and property, calling on the Security Council to provide international protection for the Palestinian people .
Al-Maliki explained that the support provided to the Israeli occupation and the silence about its repeated crimes that violate international laws and covenants made it far from any accountability and encouraged it to commit more crimes against the defenseless Palestinian people.
Al-Maliki reviewed the crimes of the occupation, the most recent of which was the crime committed by his forces this morning against the Salhiya family in Sheikh Jarrah in occupied Jerusalem, where they raided their house and abandoned their members with their children after they demolished the house and arrested about 20 Palestinians of its owners and supporters.
Over the past years, the violations and serious crimes of the Israeli occupation against the Palestinians have not stopped, including killing, arrest, abuse, torture, displacement and settlement amid dubious international silence and the inability of the international community to stop these crimes, which amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity.
