The National Society for Human Rights in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia denounces and strongly condemns the gross violations of human rights that the Palestinian people are subjected to in Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including killing of civilians, children and women, the destruction of infrastructure, and the blatant’ attacks of the sanctity of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, security and safety of worshipers.

In addition, the Society affirms that the continued Israeli aggression on Gaza Strip causing the death of the innocents, the displacement of the civilian population, the destruction of infrastructure and demolition of media outlets, poses a blatant violation of the international humanitarian law and human rights principles as well as being a blatant challenge to the whole world that witnesses the aggression without taking an action to deter it. It also reaffirms the state’s systematic terrorism approach practiced by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The National Society for Human Rights calls on the international community to take urgent action to stop such attacks and this brutal bombardment that violates the principle of distinction and proportionality in the international humanitarian law, and which poses a flagrant violation of the rules of this law, that its provisions must be adhered to in the event of conflicts and wars.

In addition, the Society calls on all the concerned international organizations to extend a helping hand to the afflicted and displaced in the Gaza Strip and to pressure the Israeli government to stop its genocide project.

The Society praises the stances of many countries, foremost of which is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which stands by the rights of the Palestinian people, and works to defend Islamic sanctities in Jerusalem and the rights of worshipers in Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Finally the Society calls for support for all efforts aimed at ending the occupation and reaching a just and comprehensive solution that enables the Palestinian people to fully realize their legitimate rights, which were guaranteed to them by international covenants and Security Council resolutions.
