Kuwait’s Crown Prince Sheikh Meshal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah called on the international community to take urgent action to put an immediate halt to Israeli violations in the Gaza Strip.
Addressing Cairo Peace Summit in the New Administrative Capital on Saturday, Sheikh Meshal also called for providing international protection for the people of Palestine and opening safe aid delivery corridors into the strip.
Sheikh Meshal condemned the crimes committed by the Israeli occupation against civilians, describing them as “collective punishment” of defenseless civilians.
Such practices fly in the face of international law, he said, noting that the current humanitarian tragedy is a natural result of the international community’s failure to work for finding a just and lasting solution to the Palestinian issue.
He also denounced the international community’s double standards that elevate Israeli lives over those of Palestinians.
Kuwait also rejects the forced displacement of Palestinians from their land, at the expense of neighboring countries, Sheikh Mishal said, reaffirming his country’s support for Palestinians’ right to have their own independent state based on the pre-1967 borders.
