RAMALLAH, Tuesday, January 21, 2020 (WAFA0 – The Palestinian Foreign Ministry said today that the European Union’s rejection of Israeli measures in the occupied Palestinian territories, particularly in occupied Jerusalem, and calling on Israel, as the occupying power, to abide by international law is a step too little, too late.
“The Occupying Power has established a sort of immunity against any effects and consequences of statements issued by the European Union or its individual member states as it continues to commit crimes against our people, throwing against the wall all the international condemnations, pleas and expressions of concern,” it said in a statement.
The Ministry affirmed that “contentment with statements of rejection of occupation measures remains shy, weak and late, and does not rise to the level of the problem and the responsibilities of the European Union and its member states.’
It called on the EU “to take a stronger position to confront the open battle over Jerusalem.”
The Ministry said Israel continues to take over Palestinian homes after kicking their residents out of them and turn them over to Jewish settlers, issue demolition orders against dozens of homes and continues excavations under Old City homes, not to mention the daily provocations at Al-Aqsa Mosque and city schools, and settlement construction.
