Qatar Condemns Israeli Government's Plans on Developing Settlements

Doha / Media & Communication Dept./ December 30

The State of Qatar expresses its strong condemnation and denunciation of the Israeli government's plans for settlement expansion, its continued attempts to Judaize Al Quds and Al Aqsa mosque, considering them a severe violation of the UN Charter, international law principles, related UN resolutions, and a blatant assault on the rights of the brotherly Palestinian people.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses, the State of Qatar's great alarm regarding the impact these consistent Israeli violations will have in terms of undermining international efforts dedicated to a two-state solution, and calls on the international community to assume its responsibility in ensuring Israel stops its settlement policy in occupied Palestinian Territories.

The ministry reaffirms the State of Qatar's firm position regarding the just Palestinian cause, the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, and establishing an independent Palestinian state based on the borders of 1967 with East Al Quds as its capital.
