Foreign Affairs and Expatriates // warns of the dangers of wasting the opportunity provided by the truce to stop the aggression against our people
JENIN, NOV 26 /DNA/ – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemns in the strongest terms the escalation in violations and crimes of the occupation forces and armed colonialist militias against Palestinian citizens, their lands, homes, properties, crops and sanctities, including the ongoing bloody incursions that continually leave more martyrs and detainees in mass and the demolition of infrastructure, as happened in the city of Jenin and its camp and the city of Al-Bireh and the village of Yatma, south of Nablus, and the settlers continued their attacks on Palestinian farmers, as happened in Khirbet Yanun, south of Nablus. The Ministry also strongly condemns the occupation’s razing of more than 100 dunums and uprooting dozens of olive trees east of Qalqilya to expand the colony perched on citizens’ lands in that area, in addition to this.
To the continued imposition of restrictions on the movement of citizens in the occupied West Bank, the dismemberment of it, and the control of the occupation army and settler militias on the main roads linking the governorates, which forces citizens to search for alternative, difficult, rugged roads that require a longer time to fulfill their needs and reach their homes and places of work.
This is at a time when the truce continues in the Gaza Strip, which revealed the unprecedented scale of destruction that befell the Strip and the scale of the humanitarian catastrophe that citizens in the Gaza Strip are experiencing, which requires the continuation of the regional and international movement to stabilize the truce, transform it into a sustainable ceasefire, and secure the basic needs of Palestinian citizens in Gaza strip.
Here, the Ministry warns of the consequences of wasting the opportunity for a truce and not turning it into a sustainable ceasefire with the aim of stopping the comprehensive Israeli aggression against our people in the Gaza Strip and in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
The Ministry calls for a binding international roadmap to resolve the conflict and stop the cycle of wars and violence, and stresses that a political solution to the conflict in accordance with international peace references, the Arab Peace Initiative and international legitimacy resolutions is the correct and only approach to stopping the cycle of wars and violence and achieving security and stability in the region, by ending the occupation and enabling the Palestinian people to exercise His right to self-determination with complete freedom and to embody his independent state on Earth with East Jerusalem as its capital, in implementation of the principle of the two-state solution.
