Palestinian Prime Minister Calls on Germany to Take Consistent Position on Israeli Crimes in Gaza

Ramallah, Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh called on German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock to take a position consistent with international humanitarian law regarding war crimes committed by the Israeli occupation authorities in the Gaza Strip.

Shtayyeh said during his meeting Saturday night with Baerbock that not calling for a halt to the war is an encouragement for the Israeli entity to continue its aggression against the Palestinian people in Gaza, calling on Germany to take serious measures against settlement and settler terrorism in the West Bank, since Germany considers the settlement illegal.

He said that targeting hospitals is a war crime that cannot be tolerated and must be condemned by every country and international institution, indicating that immediate measures must be taken to stop it, provide protection for civilians, and stop collective punishments.

The Palestinian Prime Minister affirmed that the priority today is a ceasefire, delivering humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, and stopping terrorist settlers attacks on Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.
