Arab League to Hold Urgent Meeting on Gaza, US Embassy Move

CAIRO – The Arab League announced on Wednesday that it will hold an emergency meeting of its member states’ foreign ministers to discuss the US embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and the killing of Palestinians by Israeli Defense Forces in the Gaza Strip.

Assistant Secretary-General Hossam Zaki said at a press conference that the bloc’s permanent representatives met on Wednesday and drew up a resolution on the Gaza Strip deaths and the US Embassy move that will be presented on Thursday to the full complement of foreign ministers.

Zaki explained that the resolution will display Arab countries’ support for the Palestinian cause and the League’s rejection of Washington’s decision to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

The US inaugurated its new embassy on Monday, a step that entails the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, even though a large part of the international community opposes the new US stance.

On Monday, the Israeli army killed more than 60 Palestinians and injured 3,188 along the Gaza-Israel boundary as they were protesting the embassy’s inauguration.

At least 112 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces and 12,000 injured in ongoing mass demonstrations in Gaza since March 30.
