Egypt, Jordan and Palestine condemn continued Israeli violations

CAIRO, January 17 (Prensa Latina) Egypt, Jordan and Palestine have today criticized Israel’s unilateral and illegal actions in the occupied territories and warned that they undermine the possibilities for a just peace.

During a trilateral summit in this capital, the Presidents of Egypt, Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, and of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas, as well as the King of Jordan, Abdullah II, criticized Israeli colonization and confiscation of land, destruction of housing and the Expulsion of Arabs in the West Bank.

In a statement from the presidency of that North African nation, the leaders of the three countries also denounced the ongoing raids by Tel Aviv forces on Palestinian cities.

In addition, they called on the international community to protect these people who are fighting for their legitimate rights.

In this regard, they called for increased efforts to resume peace negotiations to resolve the conflict on the basis of the two-state solution.

El Sisi, Abbas and Abdullah II agreed that the rights of the Palestinians must be protected and an independent state established on the borders before the 1967 war, with East Jerusalem as the capital.

The continued lack of a political solution to the problem is affecting the security and stability of the region, they stressed.

Likewise, they rejected the constant violations of the historical and legal status quo in the city of Jerusalem and its holy sites.

Earlier this month, Israel’s Minister of National Security, ultra-nationalist Itamar Ben-Gvir, angered Muslims around the world by entering Jerusalem’s Esplanade des Mosques under police escort, an area also sacred to Jews because their two Biblical temples were built there .
