By Manal Abdel Fattah

Mr. Ahmed Aboul Gheit, Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, considered that the resolution adopted by the Security Council on Friday, No. 2722 – which called for a truce and extended humanitarian corridors throughout the Gaza Strip – had come too late and that it was still far from what was expected to be achieved, which is a complete ceasefire in the Strip.

The Secretary-General said that the decision is an attempt to prevent famine in the Gaza Strip, and to save people, especially women and children, from a catastrophic situation, but it is not enough to stop the Israeli aggression machine, especially since it does not include a ceasefire.

The Secretary-General added that the decision came after procrastination and procrastination at the request of Israel, stressing that what is required is not only the introduction of humanitarian aid into the Strip, but also the protection of civilians from the continuous bombing, achieving a sustainable ceasefire, and directly starting a major relief operation that includes hundreds of thousands who are missing. The minimum necessary necessities for life.

Aboul Gheit concluded his statement by noting that every step to alleviate the suffering of civilians in Gaza is a step in the right direction, but addressing the humanitarian catastrophe cannot be achieved through partial measures or palliative measures to absorb the anger of world public opinion over what is happening in Gaza.

The Secretary-General of the Arab League stressed that rejecting an immediate ceasefire is a license to kill, and that Arab efforts will not stop in order to reach an end to the war, calling on the United States to reread the situation and take the correct decision from both the humanitarian and political standpoints instead of being led by the desire of the Israeli extreme right. Inflicting collective punishment and comprehensive revenge on 2.3 million people in the Gaza Strip.
