Safadi's speech shed light on the ongoing struggles faced by Palestinians living under Israeli occupation. He passionately stated, "The Palestinian infant has the right to milk deprived by Israeli occupation. The Palestinian child has the right to a safe school obstructed by Israeli occupation." This poignant assertion highlighted the denial of basic necessities and education to Palestinian children.

The Deputy Prime Minister emphasized the gravity of the situation in Gaza, where Palestinians endure relentless aggression. Safadi lamented, "In Gaza, Palestinians die as a result of brutal aggression, killing innocents through bombardment and starvation." His words underscored the urgent need for an immediate cessation of hostilities and accountability for war crimes.

Safadi also called attention to the staggering impact of Israeli occupation, citing statistics such as, "Israel reduced about six hundred and fifty thousand students' schools to rubble or crowded shelters." These figures underscored the scale of destruction and displacement inflicted upon Palestinian communities.

Furthermore, Safadi urged the international community to hold Israel accountable for its violations of international law, stating, "Declare that the perpetrators of war crimes against innocent civilians must be held accountable." His impassioned plea echoed Jordan's unwavering commitment to justice and peace in the region.
