Algeria called on Sunday, the UN Security Council to put an end to the suffering of the Palestinian people, especially in Gaza Strip, where the Zionist army is attacking the Palestinians, killing more than 200 people, including many children.
During an urgent meeting of Security Council regarding “the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian issue,” the permanent representative of Algeria to the United Nations and the head of the Arab Group for the month of May, Ambassador Sofiane Mimouni, called on Security Council to “assume its legal, moral and humanitarian responsibilities and put an immediate end to the attacks of the occupation forces, providing international protection for Palestinian people.
In this regard, Ambassador Mimouni stressed on behalf of the Arab Group that “the crimes committed by the occupying power against the Palestinians, especially the citizens of occupied El Qods, aimed at expelling them from their properties are the main reasons for the escalation of violence.”
He explained that “Palestinians in general, and the residents of occupied El Qods in particular, have been subjected to violent campaigns throughout the month of Ramadan, amid an indifference of the international community, which allowed the occupation force to continue its colonial project, without any respect for international law and international legitimacy, which puts the whole region on the brink of an unprecedented dispute.”
Sofiane Mimouni reiterated his “clear condemnation of the crimes committed by the occupation force against the Palestinians, which touched their spaces of worship, both Islamic and Christian, and their right to freedom of worship, which is guaranteed by all laws and religions.”
He also stressed, in particular, “the necessity of preserving the current and historical legal status of occupied El Qods and places of Islamic and Christian worship, including Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
The permanent representative of Algeria to the United Nations affirmed that “every attempt to hold the Palestinians responsible for the escalation of violence is unacceptable and is doomed to failure,” noting that this escalation “is a direct result of the occupation policy that undermines the chances of peace and the establishment of the Palestinian state.”
Sofiane Mimouni also called on the Security Council to “take practical measures to put an immediate end to violence and to use all diplomatic means in order to abolish all illegal measures taken by the occupying power.”
The same spokesman affirmed that setting fire will be a first stage and called on Security Council, the Middle East Quartet and the Secretary-General of the United Nations to “fully commit to a positive response to the call of the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, to hold an international symposium to activate the peace path and find a fair and sustainable solution to the conflict that will allow the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian state” with El Qods as its capital, according to the relevant UN regulations.
