CAIRO, The Arab League on Tuesday praised relentless efforts that had been exerted by the State of Kuwait when it served as member of the United Nations Security Council last February in support of the Palestinian cause.
The Kuwaiti efforts were appreciated in a statement issued after the extraordinary meeting that grouped delegates at the Arab organization to demonstrate solidarity with the Palestinians in face of latest Israeli attacks.
The session final statement affirmed support for a request by Palestine to the International Criminal Court to hold urgent investigation into the Israeli crimes against peaceful Palestinian demonstrators.
The conferees affirmed the Palestinians’ right to pursue their struggle through whatever means against the occupation, called on the UN to form a panel to prosecute the Israeli officials for the latest crime, alluding to Friday’s deadly shooting by Israeli troops against Palestinian protestors on Gaza’s fringes.
They condemned the UNSG for failing to denounce the Israeli crimes and urged the council to undertake its responsibility to protect the Palestinians.
