Palestinians called out to countries to assist them in establishing a state with Jerusalem as its capital on International Day of Solidarity. In a statement released on Monday to commemorate both events, the Palestinian National Council stated that Palestinian rights are “unchanging and will not be taken away.” Palestinian writer, Muhammed Al Kurd began his speech by thanking UN for this opportunity, ‘Occupation authorities must be really concerned right now.’ Moving forward, he addressed the audience, “The problem again is not ignorance, it is inaction. Our lives are consumed by the anxiety of living on the brink of homelessness. The UN has called this a war crime, but more importantly. I know this is theft.”
Marking the occasion, the UN Chief says the situation the region “continues to pose a significant challenge to international peace and security.”
