New York (UN) – The Kingdom of Morocco closely follows the tragic situation in Gaza and calls for an immediate cessation of the cowardly Israeli assault which targets unarmed Palestinian civilians, said, on Tuesday at the UN headquarters in New York, Morocco’s ambassador to the UN Omar Hilale.
Morocco, which condemns and deplores the Israeli military escalation targeting the Palestinian people in a blatant violation of international law, urges the international community to fully shoulder its responsibility and urgently intervene to stop immediately this cowardly assault against unarmed civilians, said the ambassador before the UNSC.
Hilale, who was speaking at a public session by the UN body on the situation in the Middle-East, added that it is up to the international community to protect the Palestinian people and secure their legitimate rights, calling Israel to observe international law.
The ambassador recalled that King Mohammed VI, president of Al Quds Committee, talked last Sunday over the phone with Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas on the unprecedented tragic situation prevailing in Gaza, in flagrant violation of human values and humanitarian international law.
The King expressed his sincere condolences to the Palestinian martyrs’ families and denounced, once more, the Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people, their lands and properties, and reaffirmed the support of Morocco, King, Government and People, to Palestine, he said.
The King rushed emergency humanitarian aid worth 5 million to the Palestinian population in Gaza and offered the wounded the possibility to get admitted and receive health care in Moroccan hospitals, Hilale recalled.
