NEW YORK, December 20, 2011 (WAFA) – Ambassador and Permanent Observer of Palestine at the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, called on the UN Security Council to act against the Israeli violations against Palestinians and hold the Israeli government accountable for its provocative actions.
He explained, in a letter addressed to the Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki Moon, the extremely deteriorating situation in the Palestinian Territory including East Jerusalem, as a result of the illegal and provocative policies adopted by the Israeli government and settlers.
He focused on the settlers’ attacks against Palestinians, their properties and holy places and called on the international community to stop this violent and illegal campaign launched by settlers and their government.
He affirmed that the international community’s silence over the Israeli crimes and Israel’s rejection of submitting to law will lead to major failure in efforts to revive the peace process and achieve a two-state solution.
