Saudi Arabia: The Israeli occupation is illegal and must be ended without conditions

The Ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the Netherlands, Ziyad bin Maashi Al-Attiyah, said on Tuesday that the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories is “illegal,” calling for its end “without conditions.”


This came in a speech during a hearing held by the International Court of Justice in The Hague, based on a request from the United Nations General Assembly to provide advisory opinions regarding the legal consequences arising from Israel’s policies and practices in the occupied Palestinian territories.


The Saudi ambassador said, "Israel's actions indicate that it has no intention of peace."


He added: "Israel made it impossible to establish a Palestinian state by annexing more than two million dunams of land and building more than 279 illegal settlements in the West Bank."


Ambassador Al-Attiyah stressed that "the Israeli occupation is illegal and must be ended without conditions."
