  HE the GCCSG Condemns in the Strongest Terms the Israeli Bombardment of a School Belonging to the UNRWA Sheltering Thousands of Displaced Persons

General Secretariat - Riyadh
His Excellency Mr Jasem Mohamed Albudaiwi, Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), strongly condemned the Israeli bombardment of a school belonging to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) sheltering thousands of displaced persons in the Nuseirat refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.

His Excellency stressed that the Israeli bombardment that targeted a school sheltering displaced persons, resulting in dozens of martyrs and many injured, is a compelling evidence of the savagery of the Israeli occupation forces and their blatant disregard for international conventions, agreements and treaties.

He called on the international community to assume its responsibilities and pressure the Israeli occupation forces to stop their grave and serious violations against the brotherly Palestinian people, stressing the need to take strict measures against these heinous crimes that contradict the most basic principles of international and humanitarian law.

Moreover, His Excellency the GCC Secretary General reiterated the firm positions of the GCC states towards the Palestinian cause, considering it the central and primary cause for Arabs and Muslims, and supporting the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within the June 4, 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with the Arab Peace Initiative and the resolutions of international legitimacy.
