AMMAN — International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, which falls on Tuesday, represents a “state of human awakening” on Israel’s crimes and injustice on the defenseless and besieged people, who have suffered a long policy of apartheid that should end, Secretary-General of the Royal Committee for Jerusalem Affairs (RCJA) Abdullah Kanaan said.اضافة اعلان

In a press statement marking the occasion, he said the RCJA called on the world to focus its attention on this day by taking historic decisions to support UN resolution issued on November 29, 2012, which granted Palestine the status of a UN observer member state.

The process should realize full recognition of Palestine’s membership in the UN, which reflects its historical, legitimate, and legal right to self-determination, and the establishment of its state on its national soil on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, he said.

On this occasion, he called on achieving a continuous approach to protecting the Palestinian people, and defending their rights.

“True” solidarity with the Palestinian people means global attention to their rights by all global powers, away from the policy of double standards, and support to Israel, he said.

He also called on supporting the Palestinian people to lift Israel’s economic and social restrictions, urging the free media to expose Israel’s practices, and shed light on suffering of the Palestinian people.

At the Palestinian, Arab, and Islamic levels, Kanaan urged pan-Arab unity to support Palestinians’ steadfastness, and support the Hashemite Custodianship over Jerusalem’s Islamic and Christian holy sites.
