Earlier, the Kuwaiti prime minister had reaffirmed his country’s principled and firm position in supporting the choices of the Palestinian people to obtain their legitimate rights.
“The Palestinian cause still occupies a central historical and pivotal position in Arab and Islamic worlds,” Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah told the 75th session of the UN General Assembly via video link.
Al-Sabah stressed the importance of continuing efforts to relaunch negotiations to reach a just and comprehensive peace in accordance with the Arab Peace Initiative.
He called for an end to the Israeli occupation and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the world’s longest-running and most controversial conflicts as a result clashes between the two counties once again escalated in Jerusalem. More than 49 Palestinians and several others were injured as Israeli forces targeted innocent people outside the Old City of Jerusalem.
The fighting began after weeks of rising Israeli-Palestinian tension in occupied East Jerusalem that culminated in clashes at a holy site revered by both Muslims and Jews. Israel says more than 3,000 rockets have been fired into the country over the past week.
On Monday, rocket warning sirens sounded again, in several areas around southern Israel. One rocket hit an apartment building in the city of Ashdod and several people were reportedly hurt.
Palestinian officials in Gaza, meanwhile, said the overnight strikes had caused widespread power cuts and damaged hundreds of homes and other buildings.
“Slept for 3 hours – we are physically safe but had one of the [most] difficult nights,” one resident wrote on Twitter.
The overall death toll in the territory now stands at 200, including 59 children and 35 women, with 1,305 injured, according to its health ministry.
