Qatar has called on the international community to take all necessary measures to stop the violations and crimes committed by the Israeli occupation forces against the Palestinians.
In a speech delivered by ambassador Ali Khalfan al-Mansouri, Permanent Representative of Qatar to the United Nations Office and other international organisations in Geneva on Monday, Qatar called on the international community to hold accountable all those responsible for the crimes and to bring them to justice and provide urgent protection for the Palestinian people as well as put pressure on the Israeli entity to implement the resolutions of international legitimacy, end its occupation of all Palestinian and Arab territories, and stop the implementation of settlement policies and plans.
The discussion was held under item 7 of the agenda of the UN Human Rights Council in the interactive dialogue with the International Independent Investigation Commission In the occupied Palestinian territory.
Ambassador al-Mansouri expressed Qatar's strong condemnation of the insistence of Israel, the occupying power, to continue targeting and killing Palestinian civilians who demand the restoration of all their legitimate rights, in particular the right of return of refugees and the lifting of the unjust siege imposed on the Gaza Strip, through peaceful civilian demonstrations, which would not represent any threat or military or combat action, "and this is confirmed by the report of the Committee."
Qatar welcomed the conclusions and recommendations contained in the report of the International Commission of Inquiry and strongly deplored the failure of the occupying powers to co-operate with the committee to enable it to carry out the tasks entrusted to it, ambassador al-Mansouri added.
He noted that the report referred to the targeting of Israeli occupation forces, especially Israeli snipers, and the deliberate killing of Palestinian demonstrators, and the excessive fire on journalists, paramedics, children and persons with disabilities, as a blatant violation of international laws and conventions.
Israeli military and political leaders were encouraging to continue committing more violations and crimes with impunity of those responsible and the support they receive from some states, the ambassador said, calling on the international community to take all necessary measures to stop the violations and crimes committed by the occupation forces against the Palestinians.
In another speech delivered by al-Mansouri, during the general debate on the situation of human rights in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories, he stressed the importance of the existence and survival of the seventh item on the agenda of the Human Rights Council Human rights and the crimes that Israel continues to commit against the Palestinian people, in flagrant defiance of the Human Rights Council, and a clear disregard for international institutions.
He added that the occupation government must be aware that the continued acts of violence and terrorism against Palestinian civilians and their sanctities, the continuing attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque and its worshipers, attempts to Judaise the city of Jerusalem and change its demographic and political character are a provocation to the feelings of millions of Muslims and Christians.
"It must also be understood that the Palestinian issue will remain the first issue of Arabs and Muslims and all honorable people in the world", ambassador al-Mansouri underlined.
He called on the international community to assume its responsibilities to provide urgent protection to the Palestinian people and to pressure Israel to "implement the resolutions of international legitimacy, end its occupation of all Palestinian and Arab territories and stop implementing settlement policies and plans that lead to the failure of the peace process, and spreading chaos and extremism in the Middle East.
