MWL condemns Israeli escalation in Gaza

The Muslim World League (MWL) expressed deep concerns over the Israeli military escalation in Gaza Strip, condemning the ground operations undertaken by the occupation forces in the enclave, SPA said on Sunday.

In a statement on Saturday, the MWL Secretary-General and Chairman of the Organization of Muslim Scholars, Mohammad bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, denounced this horrific attack, which threatens the lives of the Palestinian civilians and aggravates their humanitarian crisis.

He said the attack turns a deaf ear to all the appeals, warnings and decisions from countries and organizations with regard to the subsequent humanitarian and security risks.

Al-Issa warned of the continuation of such flagrant violations of international laws, religious and humanitarian norms, given the grave repercussions of these violations on the region’s stability and on regional and international peace.

He also called on the international community to shoulder its responsibility and immediately halt this military operation in accordance with the resolution of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) issued on Friday, 27 October to protect the innocent civilians and uphold the international humanitarian law.
