Qatar calls end to Israeli occupation of Arab territories

Doha, Qatar Thursday said it renews its commitment to solidarity with the Palestinians who “continue their just struggle to restore their land, sanctities and inalienable rights that are supported by all international and humanitarian laws and principles.”

Qatar’s permanent representative to the UN, Sheikha Alia Ahmed Al Thani, reiterated Doha’s commitment in an address she delivered before the United Nations General Assembly at its seventy-seventh session.

Al Thani’s said the right to self-determination comes at the forefront of these rights to ensure the establishment of an “independent, sustainable and viable” Palestinian state on the June 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital and based on the two-state solution and the Arab Peace Initiative.

She noted the “need” to end the Israeli occupation of all occupied Arab territories, including the Syrian Golan Heights and Lebanese territories, explaining that the liberation of Arab lands would be the way to realise a sustainable settlement to the Palestinian cause and that peace and stability in the Middle East “would not be achieved without this settlement.”

She renewed Qatar’s “strong” condemnation of Israel’s attacks in 2022 on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, adding that Israeli occupation forces and Jewish settlers’ attacks on Muslim sanctities are a flagrant violation of international law and a provocation to the feelings of Muslims.
