The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has released a statement denouncing the Israeli plan to seize Palestinian land in East Jerusalem.

Israeli occupation authorities plan to confiscate Palestinian lands in the Silwan neighbourhood of occupied East Jerusalem to build an air train

 

The statement read as follows:

“The State of Qatar strongly condemns the decision of the Israeli occupation authorities to confiscate Palestinian lands in the Silwan neighbourhood of occupied East Jerusalem to build an air train. It also considers this decision a flagrant violation of the principles and provisions of international law and the relevant “UNESCO” resolutions.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls on the UN Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities to oblige Israel to stop its measures aiming at changing the historical and legal status of the city of Jerusalem. It also warns against the Israeli occupation exploiting the international community’s preoccupation with developments in the Gaza Strip to pass unilateral decisions that violate the rights of the brotherly Palestinian people.

The Ministry stresses that the Israeli decision will hinder the achievement of a two-state solution, which is the only way to achieve sustainable peace in the region.

The Ministry reiterates Qatar’s firm position on the Justice of the Palestinian cause, the legitimate rights of the brotherly Palestinian people, and the establishment of their independent state on the 1967 borders and with East Jerusalem as its capital.”
