Israeli occupation continues its crimes and settlement plans, says Palestinian Foreign Ministry

Occupied Al-Quds, (ST) - The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs affirmed that, the Israeli occupation continues its crimes and settlement plans in the occupied Palestinian territories with the aim of preventing any opportunity for establishing an independent Palestinian state geographically connected to its capital, Al-Quds (Jerusalem).

Palestinian Foreign Ministry condemned, in a statement, reported by Wafa News Agency, the ongoing occupation crimes against the Palestinians, their land and property, the most recent of which was the killing of 17-year-old Ata Muhammad Rayan in the occupied West Bank city of Salfit yesterday.

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry called on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities and put pressure on the occupation to stop its violations and crimes against the Palestinians.

Occupation crimes are a violation of international resolutions, says Palestinian National Council

In another development, the Palestinian National Council affirmed that the Israeli occupation’s crimes against the holy sites in occupied Palestine are a blatant violation of international legitimacy resolutions, calling on international community to hold Israel accountable for its continuous attacks.

The Palestinian National Council said in a statement reported by Wafa News Agency that, that the occupation's insistence on preventing all restoration work in the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, obstructing the entry of basic materials needed for maintenancecomes as a continuation of the implementation of its plan of Judaizing the city of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and its Islamic and Christian sanctities and imposing new reality and changing its historical and cultural character.

The National Council called on the free people of the world and the Arab and Islamic nations to shoulder their responsibilities and take the necessary measures to save the city of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and its holy sites, foremost of which is the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.
