GCC leaders have condemned the attack on Gaza and reiterated their demand for an end to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.

In a statement issued at the end of the 44th session of the Gulf Cooperation Council on Tuesday, the leaders of the six nations condemned Israel’s ongoing military actions in Gaza, “which have led to the forced displacement of the civilian population, and the destruction of civilian facilities and infrastructure, including residential buildings, schools, health facilities, and places of worship.”

The statement of declaration went on to say such actions were “in clear violation of international law and international humanitarian law,” and they expressed their dissatisfaction with the “blatant Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people”.

The summit took place in Qatar and was attended by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, leading the Saudi delegation. Representatives from the six Gulf nations were joined by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who highlighted the substantial trade volume of $23 billion between Turkey and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries.

He went on to condemn Israel’s continued bombardment of the Gaza Strip, adding: “Netanyahu is committing war crimes against humanity in Gaza.”

And he said that Netanyahu “is pushing the entire region into danger for the sake of his political future.”

The GCC statement also agreed to help rebuild “what the Israeli war machine destroyed in its attacks on the Strip during the past years.”

The GCC leaders warned that “if the war continued there was a danger of the conflict expanding to other regions in the Middle East, something it warned would lead to “dire consequences for the peoples of the region and international peace and security.”
