Arab Parliament renews support for Palestinians’ rights

The Arab Parliament on Wednesday affirmed its unwavering support for the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.

The parliament, marking the 47th anniversary of the Land Day, renewed in a statement solidarity with the Palestinian people in defending their territories, history, sanctities and national identity. It underscored the need for attaining peace according to UN resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative that envisages establishing an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Marking Land Day this year coincided with dangerous escalation against the Palestinian people in the West Bank and Jerusalem. This has been the situation since formation of a radical rightwing government early this year.

The right-wing Israeli government has pressed ahead with coercive relocation of the Palestinian people.

Moreover, there has been acceleration of settlements' construction, further lands misappropriation amid unprecedented attacks by settlers' militias, it said, also alluding to recurring desecration of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Arab Parliament urged the international community to take serious action for ending the occupation, establishing the Palestinian state and protecting the Palestinian people.
