Palestinian FM: World cannot remain silent on Israeli atrocities

[28-03-2022 04:54 PM]

Ammon News - The Palestinian Foreign Ministry said that the world cannot remain silent as Israel and Jewish settlers continue their atrocities in the occupied Palestinian lands.

The violations and crimes committed by the occupation authority, its settlers and armed Jewish groups against the Palestinians and their land, property and holy sites, rise to war crimes and crimes against humanity for which it is held to account under the international law, it said in a statement.

It cited the ongoing campaign to "Israelize and Judaize Jerusalem and alter its historical, legal and demographic status in line with the occupation authority's narrative and expansionist colonialist ambitions, consolidate its annexation and complete its separation from Palestinian surroundings, and unilaterally decide its political future by the power of occupation."

The latest of these actions was the settlers' storming and seizure of a hotel in Sheikh Jarrah and targeting other Arab neighborhoods of occupied East Jerusalem, under the protection of the occupation police, as well as escalating raids into Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, assaults on Palestinian and church properties in Jerusalem, home demolitions and serving demolition orders within the context of the Judaization and forced eviction policy against Jerusalemites, it said.

It also condemned "ethnic cleansing" in areas (C) and stepping up settlement building in these areas, including a settlement outpost near Ramallah, land grabs and demolitions across the occupied West Bank and attacks in the old city of Hebron.

The Palestinian ministry held the Israeli government fully and directly responsible for the violations and crimes and their repercussions on the conflict, referring to reliable international, United Nations and human rights reports that corroborated Israel's system of apartheid, as stated in reports by the Israeli rights group B'Tselem, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, the UN Special Rapporteur and the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
