Geneva/ Information Office/ 24 March 2015/ The State of Qatar stressed that the continuation of Israel's occupation of Arab and Palestinian territories is a key factor to the state of instability in the region. This came Tuesday in the State of Qatar's Speech delivered by Jassim Al-Muawda, Third Secretary in Qatar's Permanent Delegation to UN office in Geneva (UNOG), during the public debate under Chapter VII of the Human Rights Council, entitled "The human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories", in the framework of the twenty-eighth session of the Human Rights Council. Al-Muawda said that Israel is committing the most heinous violations of human rights against the Palestinian people, killing women, children and the elderly, without accountability of the international community, which puts the credibility of the international community, especially the Security Council at stake. He stressed that the State of Qatar, despite the crises that ail the Arab region, believes that the Palestinian issue is the first and pivotal for the Arab and Muslim worlds. "We also believe that the continuation of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian and Arab territories has been a key factor in the instability that prevailed in the region since the beginning of the occupation, especially with the Israeli intransigence, which was clearly evident in Israel's refusal to two states solution, he said. He expressed deep concern over the postponement of the report of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Gaza war, which would expose the heinous Israeli practices in that war. "The pressure exerted by Israel on the Commission confirms the intimidation policy carried out against the United Nations committees and various organs , and keeps the state of Israel above the law, he added. Third Secretary at the Permanent Mission of the State of Qatar stressed that the recent Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, is only a failed attempt to break the Palestinian people's will in resisting the occupation. It is the right of the Palestinians to exercise their right to self-defense, he said. Jassim Al-Muawda concluded his speech stressing the State of Qatar's firm position in support of the right and legitimacy the Palestinian people, until they receive all their legitimate rights and establish their independent state on the borders of June 1967, with its capital in East Jerusalem.
