The Palestinian National Council said that the insistence on organizing the so-called “flags march” in the occupied city of Jerusalem is a call for the continuation of persecution, terrorism and aggression against our people in the city and its Islamic and Christian holy sites.
The National Council stressed, in a statement issued by its speaker, Salim al-Zanoun, today, Monday, that our people, Muslims and Christians, are able to confront and thwart this process, as they have thwarted, with their bare chests and firm will, all previous attempts that targeted Christian and Islamic holy sites, especially the attacks on the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The National Council confirmed that the beginnings of the work of the new occupation government headed by the first supporter of settlements and one of the sponsors of the draft law to execute Palestinian prisoners in 2018, was to allow these terrorist groups of settlers to organize this aggressive march in the vicinity of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to secure protection for these terrorist settlers in exchange for abuse Restriction and oppression of our people in Jerusalem.
The National Council held the occupying government fully responsible, in accordance with its legal responsibilities as an occupying power, for all the repercussions that may result from this march, including the attacks on our people in the city of Jerusalem and the safety of their lives and property.
He called on the international community, in particular the UN Security Council and the world’s parliaments, to stop “this Israeli madness led by terrorist groups from settlers, with the full protection and support of the occupying government, which will lead to more instability in the region.”
He added that the policies of the Israeli occupation over 54 years of Judaization operations have failed to obliterate the features of the Arab Islamic and Christian city and its civilized character, and will not succeed in changing the legal status of the city of Jerusalem as an occupied Palestinian city and the capital of the Palestinian state, in accordance with the historical right of our people to it, and in accordance with the relevant international legitimacy resolutions The latest is UN Security Council Resolution 2334 of 2016.
