‘Israel’ Expanding Settlements amid Virus Pandemic – Arab League
By Staff, Agencies
The Arab League once again raised the alarm about the Zionist entity’s policy of expanding its illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories at a time when the whole world is scrambling to rein in the new coronavirus pandemic.
Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Abul Gheit issued the warning in letters to world leaders on Monday as he detailed the dangerous situation in the Palestinian territories and the continuation of the Zionist occupation in the wake of the deadly virus outbreak.
Abul Gheit further warned in the letters against the dangerous policies adopted by ‘Israeli’ leaders, especially the ruling Likud Party of Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to take advantage of the current global situation related to the coronavirus spread to expand illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.
He also called on world leaders to use utmost efforts to hold the Tel Aviv regime to account for its policies in order to prevent the health, social and economic repercussions in the Palestinian lands and refugee camps in the wake of the pandemic.
The letters were sent to the UN Secretary-General, the foreign ministers of the United States, Russia, France, Britain, China, and Germany, in addition to the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Policy and Security.
Last week, Abul Gheit also sent a letter to Director-General of the International Committee of the Red Cross Robert Mardini to warn about the danger that Palestinian prisoners are facing in Zionist jails amid rising cases of infection with the new coronavirus in the occupied territories.
The Palestinians have reported about 308 coronavirus cases and two fatalities.
