Sabri Boukdoum calls on United Nations to declare state of humanitarian emergency in occupied Palestine

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sabri Boukadoum, called on Thursday at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, the Secretary-General of the International Organization, to declare a state of humanitarian emergency in the occupied Palestinian territories to alleviate the suffering of Palestinian civilians who have been subjected for several days to unprecedented Zionist aggression.

Boukadoum said in a speech on behalf of the Arab Group at the United Nations – which is chaired by Algeria this month – before the emergency session of the UN General Assembly on the situation in the Middle East and the Palestinian issue: “We have all seen the horrific images of killing and destruction and we have followed directly the attacks that target lives and sanctities of the Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem and the brutal raids that spread death and terror in the besieged Gaza Strip.”

He pointed out that, faced with “the inability of the Security Council to take a position on these tragic events,” the Arab group believes in “the need for the General Assembly to move urgently to adopt practical steps in order to reach a comprehensive cessation of violence against Palestinians and to use all available means in order to protect them and protect their sanctities.”

Accordingly, Boukadoum added, “The Arab Group calls on the Secretary-General of the United Nations to declare a state of humanitarian emergency to enable the international community to effectively contribute to alleviating the suffering of Palestinian civilians and move to rebuild Gaza Strip, which has been under the weight of an unjust siege for fifteen years.”
