Arab League to Hold an Emergency Meeting this Thursday on The Situation in Palestine
The international community was shaken by the mass Palestinian casualties by Israeli forces on Monday, following the inauguration of the US Embassy in Jerusalem. Saudi Arabia condemned the attacks on Palestinians this week and requested the Arab League meeting on Thursday to address the Israeli-Palestinian crisis according to Hossam Al Zaki, the Arab League Assistant Secretary-General Ambassador.
Al Zaki stated that “The meeting will discuss the emergence of a unified Arab stance against the crimes against the Palestinian people, as well as to confront the US decision to transfer its embassy to the city of Jerusalem”
Monday’s massacre is the bloodiest day in Gaza since the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas. According to the National, the move was sharply criticised by the UK, France, Russia and several international human rights organizations.
