PM Shtayyeh calls on European Union and Parliament to pressure Israel to stop unilateral measures

BRUSSELS, Wednesday, May 11, 2022 (WAFA) - Prime Minister Muhammed Shtayyeh called on the European Union and Parliament to pressure Israel to stop all unilateral measures and violations against the Palestinian people, and all attempts to impose a temporal and spatial division of the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.

During a meeting with the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, at the Parliament’s headquarters in the Belgian capital, Shtayyeh briefed the EU official on the latest developments in Palestinian as well as on Israeli violations, adding that: “Israel acts as a state above the law and maintains a shoot-to-kill policy against the Palestinian people, the latest of which was the killing of Al-Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh and teenager Thayer Khalil Yazouri.”

Shtayyeh stressed the importance of accelerating the release of the European funding and pressuring Israel to accept auditing the Palestinian tax revenues along with associated deductions by an international party to put an end to all forms of piracy of Palestinian money and the illegal deductions.
