RIYADH: The recent conflict in Gaza and East Jerusalem between Israeli military forces and the Palestinian group Hamas has contributed to exposing the “true nature” of Israel to the rest of the world, an Arab League statement said Thursday.
Recent violence against Palestinian civilians has brought global attention to the conflict and has given the Israeli-Palestinian crisis the platform it deserves, the statement added.
The comments came as the secretary-general of the 22-member Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, held a meeting with a member of the Palestinian Fatah Central Committee at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo.
The two discussed the violence currently unfolding in the occupied territories of Palestine as a result of Israeli intervention, Saudi Press Agency reported.
The Arab League has strongly condemned the actions of Israeli forces and what it called millions of Palestinians currently forced to live in a state of Apartheid.
The Arab League also welcomed emergency Arab assistance to the Gaza Strip to help alleviate the suffering of its residents and standing in solidarity with the Palestinian people.
