Arab parliament urges Israel accountability for crimes against Palestinians

CAIRO, March 17 (KUNA) -- The Arab Parliament on Friday called on the international community, mainly the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and international and European parliaments, to move immediately to hold Israel accountable for its nonstop crimes against Palestinians.
In a press statement, the parliament underlined that it is necessary for the international community to provide the required protection for the defenseless Palestinian people, and to compel Israel to stop its escalation in occupied Palestinian territories.
It cautioned that this serious escalation would only lead to further deterioration and violence, and would even undermine efforts to achieve tranquility.
Four Palestinians, including a young boy, were reportedly killed and 23 others injured in an Israeli attack on Jenin city and refugee camp. (end) aff.mt
