The Secretary General of the PUIC Calls for an End to the Genocide Against the Palestinian People

The anniversary of the fateful Balfour Declaration comes at a time when the Gaza Strip is witnessing a barbaric aggression by the Zionist entity, in which hundreds of massacres have been committed leaving more than ten thousand martyrs and twenty-five thousand injured, with many more to come. Many remain trapped beneath rubble caused by the destruction of buildings, facilities, and infrastructure. This was coupled with the cutting of water and electricity and the blocking of food and medical supplies for nearly a month.

The aggression against Gaza continues, affecting nearly two million people, most of whom are women and children.

Meanwhile, in the West Bank, the Zionist occupation forces and gangs of Zionist settlers continue to carry out killings, arrests and raids. If the Balfour Declaration, which took place on 2 November 1917, was borne by the colonial authority of the time, what we are witnessing today is that all those who consider themselves the leading figures of the international community and international "legitimacy" are supporting the Zionist entity in its aggression against the Palestinian people. In fact, they are its partners in this heinous aggression.

His Excellency Mr. Mouhamed Khouraichi Niass, the Secretary-General of the Parliamentary Union of the OIC Member States, renews his appeal for the immediate cessation of this genocide against the people of Gaza and calls for the prosecution of the perpetrators of these crimes against the Palestinian people, which are being witnessed by the entire world.

His Excellency reiterates the responsibility of the Islamic nation to stand by the Palestinian people in a true and fraternal manner so that they may regain their full rights, liberate their land and establish their independent state with Al Quds as its capital.
