RAMALLAH, Thursday, November 18, 2021 (WAFA) – Presidential Spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh today stated that the current Israeli government has gone further in willful killings and war crimes against the Palestinian people.
Speaking in an interview with Voice of Palestine, Abu Rudeineh stated that the Palestinian people is facing a series of Israeli governments that continue to destroy any attempt to salvage the moribund peace process.
He cautioned that the current Israeli government has gone even further in perpetrating willful killings and war crimes against the Palestinian people, which will have grave consequences, as he urged it to reconsider its racist policies for which it will be held accountable.
He added that the Palestinian leadership have the sufficient legal means to hold Israel accountable for its crimes and violations of international law at international forums and condemned Israel’s decision to sanction all government offices that fail to relocate to the occupied city of Jerusalem, stressing that every Israeli action in Jerusalem is rejected and illegitimate.
He called upon the US administration to expeditiously translate its positive remarks regarding the two-state solution, illegitimacy of Israel’s colonial settlement construction and reopening the U.S. consulate for Palestinians in Jerusalem into actions on the ground, particularly that the situation is very serious and intolerable.
He pointed that serious work is underway to establish mechanisms to implement President Mahmoud Abbas’ speech, hold meetings and dialogues with the full spectrum of PLO factions, and convene the Palestinian Central Council to pave the way for action at the local and international arenas in the upcoming decisive stage.
Commenting on Abbas’ meeting with US Ambassador the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield on Wednesday, Abu Rudeineh stressed that the meeting focused the violations committed by the Israeli occupation authorities in the Palestinian territories and the attempts to forcibly displace Palestinians from their houses in Jerusalem will only serve to exacerbate the already precarious situation and undermine the two-state solution.
He explained that during the meeting, President Abbas affirmed that it is unacceptable for the situation to continue as it is and that the Israeli government and US administration have to shoulder their responsibilities, while calling on Thomas-Greenfield to implement all the US administration’s recent remarks.
