KUWAIT CITY (Dispatches) – Kuwait’s parliament has condemned the latest aggression against Palestinians by the Zionist regime, and has unanimously approved legislations that outlaw any deals or normalization of ties with the occupying regime.
Kuwaiti legislators expressed their country’s strong position towards the Palestinian cause during a special parliamentary session held on Thursday to discuss the latest attacks in Palestinian territories. They also expressed their support and solidarity with the Palestinian nation until they establish an independent sovereign state with East al-Quds as its capital.
“Today, the Kuwaiti parliament held a special session to emphasize the popular and official position of Kuwait on its main issue, which is the issue of Palestine,” Parliament Speaker Marzouq Ali al-Ghanim read out a statement issued at the end of the meeting.
The Zionist regime launched an offensive on the impoverished Gaza Strip, and vicious attacks against Palestinians in al-Quds, the occupied West Bank and other Palestinian territories occupied since 1948.
At least 253 Palestinians, including 66 children, were killed in the bombardment of the Gaza Strip in 11 days of conflict from May 10.
The regime’s airstrikes also brought widespread devastation to the already impoverished territory.
The Zionist regime had to yield in to a ceasefire after it faces a barrage of thousand of Palestinian rockets in reprisal.
Kuwait’s parliament hailed Palestinian resistance factions, and underscored that the position of the Kuwaiti government and parliament towards Palestine is unwavering.
Earlier in the day, Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Ahmad Nasser al-Mohammad Al Sabah stated that his country’s position on supporting Palestinians until they redress their full and legal rights is firm.
“The heinous crimes committed by occupying Israeli forces can be considered war crimes,” he said.
“The occupiers, through violence, oppression and aggression, during brutal operations against our Palestinian brethren in al-Quds and Gaza, killed people, destroyed buildings, set fire to farms and trees, and ignored the cries of children and helpless women,” Al Sabah pointed out.
