AMMAN — Senate President Faisal Fayez said the Palestinian issue will remain Jordan’s top priority and no party could ignore the Palestinian people’s right to establish their independent state on their national soil, or compromise Jerusalem’s Islamic and Christian sanctities, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.اضافة اعلان

Speaking at a meeting with a number of families of Palestinian prisoners and detainees in Israeli prisons on Wednesday, Fayez said that any solution to the Palestinian issue, which fails to restore the Palestinian people’s full and legitimate rights, is “infeasible, nihilistic and rejected”.

Lauding and voicing support for the Palestinian people’s steadfastness and their struggle for liberation, Fayez noted that thousands of Palestinian detainees and prisoners in Israel’s prisons suffer the worst forms of torture.

Citing Jordan’s role in defending Palestine and its sanctities, he said: “The Palestinian cause has continued to be at the forefront of Jordan’s priorities,” referring to the Kingdom’s duties to defend Jerusalem’s Islamic and Christian holy sites.

Fayez also highlighted His Majesty King Abdullah’s continued efforts to end the plight of the Palestinian people under Israeli occupation, and their right to establish an independent state. He said that remains a top priority for the King at various international forums.

He said the monarch’s efforts aim to achieve a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian cause and establish a sovereign state on Palestinian national soil, with Al-Quds Al-Sharif, Arabic for Jerusalem, as its capital.

Fayez called on global human rights organizations to counter Israeli practices, which exacerbate Palestinian prisoners’ suffering, violate the most basic human rights rules and support Palestinians to restore their legitimate rights.
