Arab Parliament holds special session for the support of Palestine


Under the direction of Parliament Speaker Adel Abdulrahman Al-Asoumi, the Arab Parliament called a special session titled “Supporting Palestine and Gaza,” which began on Thursday at the General Secretariat of the Arab League in Cairo.

Speakers of the Palestinian National Council, Rawhi Fattouh, Ahmed Safadi, and other prominent Arab parliamentary figures were present. A moment of silence was observed at the start of the meeting to remember the Palestinians who died as a result of Israeli aggression in the Gaza Strip and other occupied Palestinian territories.

During his speech, Al-Asoumi emphasized the need for Arab solidarity against Israeli aggression, denouncing the lack of international response and the UN Security Council’s inability to resolve the Gaza ceasefire. He emphasized that the Arab people oppose any intrusion on the Palestinian population’s legal rights and declared his unwavering support for the Palestinian cause.

Al-Asoumi emphasized the Arab Parliament’s proactive participation in regional and global endeavors aimed at bringing an end to the Gaza conflict. Similar demands were made by Fattouh, who demanded that Israeli forces leave Gaza completely, that the siege be lifted, and that people be allowed to travel freely within and outside of the region.

Stressing the importance of a cohesive Palestinian position, Fattouh called on all political parties to strive for agreement. Specifically, he advocated for the creation of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital and called on Hamas and Islamic Jihad to join forces with the Palestine Liberation Organization.

In order to pursue a two-state solution, Fattouh emphasized the significance of putting an end to the conflict, permitting the return of Palestinians who had been displaced, and proposing an international conference within a set timeframe. In order to end the conflict, guarantee the occupation forces’ complete withdrawal from Gaza, and put an end to Israel’s ongoing aggression in the West Bank, he called on the international community to act swiftly.
