Malaysia said it is “deeply concerned over the loss of so many lives” in the recent escalations between Israel and the Palestinians.

In a press release issued on Sunday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, however, added: “The root must be acknowledged. The Palestinians have been subjected to the prolonged illegal occupation, blockade and sufferings, the desecration of Al-Aqsa, as well as the politics of dispossession at the hands of Israel as the occupier.”

The world’s inactions with regards Israel, Malaysia said, “calls into question the uniformed enforcement of international principles and highlights the need for a more consistent stance in addressing an apartheid administration.”

“Palestinians have the legal right to live in a state of peace… as well as their inalienable right to return to their homes and property from which they have been displaced.”

It went on to urge the UN Security Council to live up to its charter and convene an emergency session to demand a stop in violence to protect innocent lives.
