The Arab League held an extraordinary session to discuss Arab and international action to confront the Israeli attacks on the Palestinian people in Jerusalem.
After the meeting, held via video conference, the Council expressed its strong condemnation of the crimes committed by the Israeli forces against worshipers in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The representatives warned that these attacks are “a flagrant provocation to the feelings of believers everywhere and threaten to ignite a cycle of violence that threatens security and stability in the region and the world.”
The final statement held Israel responsible for the consequences of these crimes and actions that constitute flagrant violations of United Nations resolutions and international law.
Finally, the organization called on the United Nations and international organizations, including the Security Council, to assume responsibilities for the immediate cessation of this aggression.
At the ministerial level, the Arab League Council decided to form an Arab ministerial committee that includes Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Qatar, Egypt, and Morocco. The committee’s mission is to pass and coordinate with permanent members of the Security Council and other internationally influential countries to encourage them to take practical action to end Israel’s illegal activities and policies in Jerusalem.
