The Arab Parliament rejects the expulsion of the Palestinians from Gaza

The regional legislative body confirmed in a statement that this coastal enclave is an essential part of the future Palestinian state.

He stressed that the statements made by some extremist ministers in Benjamin Netanyahu's government “are barbaric statements that reflect the racist nature of the occupation and fuel tension and conflict in the region.”

He pointed out that these words represent a flagrant violation of UN Security Council resolutions in this regard and international law.

In the face of this situation, the Arab Parliament called on the world to put pressure on Israel to bury these plans.

Yesterday, the Palestinian government highlighted the international rejection of recent calls made by Israeli ministers to expel the residents of the Gaza Strip.

In a statement, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs denounced the plans of the heads of National Security, Itamar Ben Gvir, and Finance Minister, Bezalel Smotrich, who are known for their anti-Arab and far-right positions.

Both have called for the “voluntary resettlement” of the 2.3 million Palestinians living in those territories.

This vision is rejected by the international community, led by Egypt and Jordan, which have borders with the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, respectively.

In this context, the Israeli Minister of Culture and Sports, Miki Zohar, on Thursday criticized Smotrich and Ben Gvir for pushing for the displacement of the Palestinians.

Although Zohar belongs to the right-wing Likud Party led by Netanyahu, he stressed that this vision “is not realistic, because it is clear that the international community will not accept it.”

The official admitted that he would like to get the Palestinians out of Gaza, but stated that it is not useful to discuss this publicly because it is impossible for that to happen.
