Qatar reaffirmed its firm and unwavering stance in support of the Palestinian issue, stressing the importance of uniting the Palestinian ranks to face challenges, end the Israeli occupation, recognise the independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, and restore the Palestinian people to all their legitimate rights.

This came in the speech of Qatar, delivered by HE the Permanent Representative of Qatar to the United Nations Office in Geneva, ambassador Ali Khalfan al-Mansouri, during the interactive dialogue with the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.

HE al-Mansouri said that Qatar strongly condemns the violations committed by Israel, the occupying power, against the brotherly Palestinian people, which are mentioned in the report, such as the increase in settlement activities, the demolition of Palestinian homes, arbitrary detention and administrative detention, the continuation of the policy of collective punishment on the Gaza Strip, restricting the movement of Palestinians, and obstructing efforts to combat the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19).

HE al-Mansouri stressed that the unilateral Israeli annexation schemes for the occupied Palestinian lands in the West Bank, the Jordan Valley, and other regions, are new aggression against the Palestinian people and a flagrant violation of international laws and resolutions that contribute to the aggravation of human rights violations against the Palestinians, undermine the two-state solution, and increase the state of conflict and instability in the region.

The ambassador valued the stances of all those who rejected these plans and sided with the logic of truth, justice, and respect for international legitimacy. He stressed that postponing the annexation does not mean cancelling it, as it is a primary goal of the Israeli expansionist occupation. He underlined the importance of the international community continuing to press and categorically reject this scheme, and take all appropriate measures to stop it, and ensure accountability for any violations against the Palestinian people.
