Palestine calls on int’l community, UN to provide protection for Palestinian people

Palestine has called on the international community and the United Nations to assume their responsibilities and provide international protection for the Palestinian people.

According to a statement issued by the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, there is an unprecedented and severe protection crisis that cannot be ignored.

The statement further said Israeli settler terrorism rests upon an illegal colonial foundation, rooted in land theft, assumed supremacy and exceptionalism, discrimination and racism, to justify the subjugation and eventual displacement of the Palestinian people.

It said these settler militias carry out their crimes against the Palestinian people, with full impunity and under the collective protection of the Israeli military, judiciary, and executive.

Successive Israeli governments have wilfully and deliberately ensured the entrenchment of this trend by deliberately not taking any measures to prevent or punish settler terrorism.
