UAE calls for investigation into Israeli practices

posted on 13/11/2006: 662 views

New York - The UAE has strongly condemned the current Israeli military operation in Gaza, and called upon the International Community to take effective and urgent measures to probe into Israeli practices against the Palestinian people.

"The UAE strongly condemns and denounces the current Israeli military operation in Gaza, which has claimed the lives of dozens of civilian deaths and injuries, as well as its other practices which were referred to in the report of the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People and other Arabs of the Occupied Territories, and included the ongoing campaign of building settlements and an expansionist wall in the Palestinian territories, in absolute disregard of the decision of the International Court of Justice", said Abdulraheim Obaid Saeed Al Falahi, Member of the Delegation of the UAE, in a statement before the Fourth Committee of the General Assembly on the item entitled: Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People and other Arabs of the Occupied Territories.

"An international commission of inquiry should be dispatched to these territories as soon as possible in order to investigate these crimes pursuant to the Human Rights Council resolutions and in order to reveal the full truth and compel Israel to pay appropriate compensations for the tremendous multiple damages caused to the Palestinian and Syrian populations in the occupied territories", he noted.

Al Falahi added: "over the past 38 years since the establishment of this committee, and in spite of the obstacles placed by the Israeli Government in the way of the committee to prevent its personnel from having access to the Palestinian and Syrian occupied territories and carrying out its investigations in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the General Assembly, the measures taken to blackout in formation on the inhumane practices and violations of human rights committed in these occupied territories could not hide the magnitude or the facts surrounding these crimes, which have become more heinous in the recent years due to the inability of the international community to confront them.”

"The UAE expresses its full support to the committee's position, which emphasizes the need for the international community to end, by all means available, the impunity with which Israel had been allowed to carry out its practices in the occupied Palestinian and Syrian territories,” he said.

"Finally, the UAE, which reiterates the primary responsibility of the international community, particularly the UN, to resolve the question of Palestine and the Middle East, calls upon the states and donors to reconsider their decision to suspend all financial and economic assistance directed to the Palestinian people, who are besieged in their territories, in order to enable them to overcome the current humanitarian crisis and save the situation, which may lead, if not urgently contained, to exploding the security situation not only in the occupied territories, but in the entire region,” he concluded.
