Palestinian factions as well as national and Islamic organizations in Occupied Jerusalem called for boycotting the Israeli municipality elections completely: running and election.
In a statement on Friday, the factions and organizations highlighted that Jerusalem is an occupied city according to international and humanitarian resolutions.
The statement also stressed the Palestinian nonrecognition of annexing the city, which was occupied in 1976, to 1948 Occupied Palestine which is called “Israel”.
The statement considered the participation in Israeli municipality elections as a political recognition of annexing Jerusalem to Israel, which is refused by Palestinians, Arabs and other international countries, as well as an approval of the US decision of annexing East Jerusalem and moving the US embassy to the occupied city.
