Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El Sisi reiterated on Wednesday Egypt’s unshakable stance rejecting the relocation of residents of the Gaza Strip, saying: “We reject all deliberate practices against civilians and call on the international community to intervene immediately to stop them.”
Speaking at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, President Sisi vociferously condemned all military actions targeting innocent civilians, saying they represent a flagrant violation of all international laws.
He also expressed his deep sorrow over the Palestinian victims who fell in Israel’s brutal strike on a Hospital in the north of the Gaza Strip.
Speaking at the press conference, President Sisi warned that if the current military operations continue, they will have grave security and humanitarian repercussions.
These operations will get out of control and help expand the scale of the conflict, Sisi made it clear, urging all international and regional parties to mobilize their efforts to immediately stop the current escalation.
President Sisi also stressed the necessity of establishing an independent Palestinian State based on the 4 June 1967 lines, with Al Quds (occupied East Jerusalem) as its capital.
He further noted that his talks with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz tackled the military confrontations between the Israeli and Palestinian sides and the current military escalation in the Gaza Strip, which claimed the lives of thousands of civilians on both sides.
Sisi also warned that the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip is deteriorating in an unprecedented manner.
Sisi said that he reviewed with the German chancellor Egypt’s efforts to contain the crisis and its intensive contacts with both sides of the conflict and all international and regional parties over the past days.
He added that they agreed on the essential need to open new horizons for peaceful settlement to the current crisis to avoid sliding into a vicious circle of violence and exposing civilians to further danger.
