Saudi Arabia calls for immediate ceasefire amid escalating Palestinian-Israeli conflict
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been closely monitoring the unfolding situation between various Palestinian factions and Israeli occupation forces, which has led to a surge in violence across multiple fronts in the region.
Expressing deep concern, the Kingdom has called for an immediate cessation of hostilities between the conflicting parties and emphasizes the utmost importance of safeguarding the lives of civilians. Saudi Arabia is gravely concerned about the escalating tensions and violence in the region.
This detailed report was included in a press release issued on Saturday, October 07, 2023.
Furthermore, Saudi Arabia reiterates its previous warnings about the hazardous consequences of the prolonged Israeli occupation, which has resulted in the denial of legitimate rights to the Palestinian people and repeated provocations against their sacred sites. These provocations have added fuel to the already volatile situation.
Saudi Arabia reaffirms the international community’s role and responsibility in addressing this crisis. The Kingdom calls on the international community to take decisive action and initiate a credible peace process aimed at achieving a two-state solution.
Such a solution is seen as essential for establishing lasting security and peace in the region while ensuring the protection of innocent civilians who are caught in the crossfire.
As the situation in the Middle East remains highly precarious, Saudi Arabia stands firm in its commitment to promoting peace and stability and calls for immediate measures to de-escalate the current crisis. The Kingdom underscores the urgency of resolving this longstanding conflict through diplomatic means to prevent further suffering and loss of life.
