The Arab League condemns the occupation attacks on Rafah and the attack on UNRWA headquarters

Cairo (UNA) - The League of Arab States on Friday condemned in the strongest terms the successive attacks carried out by the Israeli occupation over the past two days on the densely populated city of Rafah and the resulting casualties and displacement of tens of thousands who live in the open along the beach without the minimum necessities for life.

The Secretary-General of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, said in a statement that this crime is added to the criminal record of the occupying state, which refuses to listen to the voice of reason, even from its closest friends.

Aboul Gheit added that the Israeli occupation's ongoing maneuvers to thwart reaching an agreement that would lead to a ceasefire and the exchange of prisoners have become exposed to everyone, and that the occupying state is only interested in achieving full revenge on the residents of Gaza, regardless of any humanitarian or legal consideration. He stressed that “the entire world has begun to speak with almost one voice about the necessity of stopping this massacre immediately, and it is inconceivable that the political future of one person or the internal policy of the occupying state should stand in the face of a clear global will and a comprehensive international consensus.”

On another level, the statement condemned the attack by Israeli extremists on the headquarters of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in East Jerusalem, which led to its closure, stressing that this attack constitutes a flagrant violation of international law under which UN facilities are protected.

He also stressed that this attack reveals the continuing plan of the occupying state to undermine the role of the international agency in all its areas of work in order to weaken the Palestinian refugee community and achieve more revenge against Palestinian civilians.
