Palestine to demand at Sharm al-Sheikh meeting an end to Israel’s continuous aggression
Hussein al-Sheikh, Secretary General of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said today that a ranking Palestinian delegation, which is going to participate tomorrow in a meeting to be held at the Egyptian Red Sea resort city of Sharm al-Sheikh with regional and international presence, is going to demand an end to Israel’s continues aggression in the occupied territories.
He said in a tweet that the Palestinian delegation is going ‘to defend the rights of our Palestinian people to freedom and independence, and to demand an end to this continuous Israeli aggression against us and to stop all measures and policies that violate our blood, land, property and sanctities.’
The meeting at the Egyptian resort town is a follow-up to last month’s meeting at the Jordanian Red Sea port city of Aqaba attended by the Palestinian Authority, Jordan, Egypt, Israel and the United States, which discussed easing the tension in the occupied Palestinian territories following Israel’s large military escalation into the Palestinian cities that so far resulted in the killing of 86 Palestinians, including 18 children, two elderly men, and one woman, and the injury of many others.
While participants in the Aqaba meeting agreed to take steps to calm down the situation before the advent of the holy Muslim fast month of Ramadan, expected to start on Thursday, tension nevertheless remained high in the occupied Palestinian territories as Israel continued in its almost daily raids and killing of Palestinians.
