CAIRO: The Arab Parliament has condemned the global silence vis-à-vis Israel’s continued aggression and crimes in Gaza, citing, in particular, the failure of the United Nations Security Council to issue a truce resolution about “the largest humanitarian crisis facing the world conscience”, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported on Friday.
The Arab Parliament has issued its condemnation in a statement, at the conclusion of a special session on Palestine held under the title “Supporting Palestine and Gaza” in Cairo, the SPA reported.
The Arab Parliament special session criticized the support of nations who defend these crimes in the name of defending human rights, while they are in fact acts of genocide.

The Arab Parliament also drew attention to its regional and global endeavors to halt the war on the Gaza Strip via several parallel paths, citing its continuous communication with global and regional parliamentary unions, its call on the International Criminal Court to immediately probe the massacres committed by the occupation authorities and prosecute their perpetrators as war criminals, and its attempt to circumvent the state of total impotence and paralysis of the UNSC due to the American veto.
The Arab Parliament called on the UNGA to activate the uniting for peace resolution, and also issue a binding resolution for an immediate truce, and to keep the Palestine Committee of the Arab Parliament in a permanent meeting, the SPA added.
The Arab Parliament also affirmed that the Palestinian issue will remain the foremost concern, as it is firmly rooted in the heart of every Arab, emphasizing that the Arab people will not accept an infringement on the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people nor depriving them from their most basic right to live in freedom and dignity, and establish their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital city.
