  HE the GCCSG: The International Community must Take Immediate Action to Stop the Israeli Aggressive Violations that Threaten the Lives of Innocent Palestinians, Undermine the Chances for Peace, and Fuel Escalating Violence in the Region

General Secretariat - Riyadh

His Excellency Mr Jasem Mohamed Albudaiwi, Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), emphasised the urgent need for the international community to act collectively and exert pressure on the Israeli occupation forces to halt their dangerous aggressive violations against Palestinian territories and their threats to the lives of innocent civilians.

Moreover, His Excellency stressed that the continuation of reckless attacks and provocations undermines the prospects for peace and contributes to the escalating cycles of violence in the region, adding that this necessitates an immediate international intervention to end the crisis. 

Furthermore, His Excellency the GCC Secretary General affirmed that the expansion of Israeli military operations within Palestinian territories, including Rafah after the Gaza Strip, would expose the lives of many Palestinians to risks and directly threaten the security and peace of the entire region.

Additionally, he reiterated the GCC's steadfast support for the Palestinian cause, referring to the statement issued by the 44th extraordinary ministerial meeting of the GCC. The statement reaffirmed the commitment to the call for an international conference involving all relevant parties to discuss all issues related to the Palestinian cause and to reach a solution based on ending the Israeli occupation and establishing an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with relevant United Nations resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.
