Tayseer Khaled : The US Veto opposed protection to Palestinian people is disgraceful and immoral
Tayseer Khaled, member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), member of the Politbureau of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, called for the transfer of the international protection of the Palestinian people under occupation to the United Nations General Assembly under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter. In the means to provide international protection to the Palestinian people under occupation and to deter the outbreak of the rulers of Tel Aviv and to stop the crimes of the occupation army and bring those responsible to international justice.
That came after the veto of the United States in the UN Security Council draft resolution, submitted by Kuwait and In which it called for the mere consideration of measures to ensure the safety and protection of Palestinian civilians in the occupied Palestinian territory, including the Gaza Strip, and requested the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, to report to the members of the Council within 30 days on proposals and means of protection.
He added: We expected this position from the US administration and that it will certainly use the veto against the Kuwaiti draft resolution and called in advance to immediate transfer of these crimes to the UN General Assembly under Chapter VII (United for Peace) not only for the sake to discuss the proposals and means to provide protection , but even to pass a resolution in the General Assembly condemning the crimes of the occupation on the borders of the Gaza Strip and the crimes of settlement and daily violations of the rights of Palestinian citizens under occupation and confirm the determination of the international community to provide international protection for the Palestinian people under occupation and the cessation of the series was killed in cold blood by Israeli forces in the occupied Palestinian territories since June 1967 .
Khaled praised Kuwait’s position, which reflects the deepness of its Arab and humanitarian affiliation and the positions of all the countries that supported the draft resolution and described the American position as immoral as it gives the green light to the Israeli forces to continue their crimes and target civilians including medical crews and ambulance crews.
The crimes of the Israeli army , caused number of victims of Palestinian martyrs since the march of return on the day of the immortal Land Day about 119 martyrs, the last of the paramedic Razan Najjar, which was targeted by Israeli soldiers and snipers while preventing the wounded Palestinians on the border .
The US administration, through this veto, asserted that it is primarily concerned with providing protection to war criminals in the occupation army and is not concerned with providing protection to unarmed Palestinian civilians who exercise their right to peaceful protest in defense of their national rights and to lift the unjust siege imposed by Israel on the Gaza Strip since twelve years and the imposition of internationally sanctioned collective punishment on the Gaza Strip and the transformation of its population into hostages in a large prison has become a stain on the whole humanity and the double standards of the international community, which continues to deal with the Israeli state as an exceptional state above the law.
