Morocco: 'Arabic siege' on Gaza is the 'most aggressive phenomenon'

First Deputy Speaker of the Moroccan Parliament Mohamed Yatim said that the "Arabic siege on Gaza is the most aggressive phenomenon," stressing on the "importance" of supporting the Palestinians, Al-Resalah newspaper reported yesterday.

Speaking to Al-Resalah, Yatim said: "The issue of the siege on Gaza and the attempt to subjugate its people reveals that some of the Arabs are keeping up with the Israeli occupation."

He stressed that his country's position towards the Palestinian cause is very clear and it is "unchangeable".

"It is the complete refusal of all kinds of occupation and aggression against the Palestinians."

He expressed his surprise regarding the work being completed by human rights organisations while Arab states take part in the siege. He noted that the positions of the Arab regimes, which support the siege, are completely different from the positions of the Arab people.

The Moroccan delegation to the Arab League called on Sunday for a movement on the international arena to get a UNSC resolution to end the Israeli occupation based on an outline leading to the establishment of a Palestinian state.
