Egypt warned of the repercussions of continued escalation of the Israeli aggression in East Jerusalem, Jenin, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and all occupied lands as this could cast its shadow on regional peace and security.
Egypt vehemently condemned the Israeli hostilities in Jenin.
This came in Egypt’s speech at the opening of the extraordinary session of the Arab League Council at the permanent delegates level to review the situation in Jenin.
Minister Plenipotentiary Ebeida Dandarawi, the director of the Arab League affairs at the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, said Egypt deplored the criminal acts in the West Bank and occupied territories.
He added that the random and excessive use of force in Jenin is considered part of a series of violations of the international law.
Egypt cautioned that this hampers the efforts exerted by Egypt and parties concerned to alleviate tension to stem blood shed of the Palestinians, he said.
The international community should shoulder its responsibility towards the just Palestinian cause, stressing Egypt’s support for the Palestinian cause and rejection of the Israeli crimes against the Palestinians.
Dandarawi offered condolences to the families of the Palestinian victims in Jenin, highlighting the role of the Jordanian guardianship of Al Quds sanctities.
He accentuated that there is no option other than the two-state solution which aims at establishing an independent Palestinian state along the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.
He stressed that the Palestinian cause will remain at the top of Arab issues.
