AMMAN — Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Ayman Safadi, said on Monday that the Israeli occupation forces’ attack on the funeral of Palestinian journalist Shereen Abu Akleh on May 13 is an “inhumane behavior that cannot be imagined,” Al-Mamlaka TV reported.اضافة اعلان

During his participation in a dialogue session on the Middle East region, on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland, Safadi explained that the killing of the Palestinian-American journalist Abu Akleh “is a crime that should have resonated widely in the world because she was doing her job.”

He renewed his call for a “comprehensive investigation to help ensure that the killers are held responsible,” noting that Abu Akleh’s death was a “tragic accident.”

“This is one of many incidents. There were dozens of Palestinians who were killed in clashes in the occupied territories. There is certainly no political horizon for resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This kills hope, and this allows frustration to overspill and radicals to become empowered everywhere,” Safadi said.

“The Palestinian crisis has been going on for decades, and the Charter of the United Nations and international laws have been violated for many years,” noting that “the crises in Syria, Libya and Yemen suffer from policy management failures,” he added.

Safadi stated that “the issue of refugees has become one of the forgotten realities unless the refugees are Ukrainians,” but he added that “Ukrainian refugees should be given the assistance they deserve, and no refugee should be living in bitterness and destitution.”

Safadi said that the international system “has proven to be fragile and vulnerable to any crisis.” He called for “action in a holistic manner.”

“I will say that the world has once again proven that the international system is fragile, and that any crisis that occurs anywhere in the world goes far or goes beyond its neighborhood, and this is something we have been learning for decades,” he concluded.
