PLO) Saeb Erekat)
Secretary General of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Saeb Erekat, said in a press statement on Monday that the Palestinians will rebuild what Israel demolished, in reference to the Israeli demolition of hundreds of Palestinian homes in Wadi al-Hummus area in occupied East Jerusalem’s neighborhood of Sur Baher.
Erekat told the official Palestinian agency that President Mahmoud Abbas, the PLO, Fatah Central Committee and the Palestinian people have always asserted that they will rebuild what Israel demolishes, which should be any eye opener to Israel’s crimes.
Erekat called on the international community and the International Criminal Court and its Prosecutor to investigate these crimes, adding that the United Nations General Assembly and the Human Rights Council must hold Israel accountable for its crimes.
“Is there a comment on this crime from those who claim that they want a better future for the children of Palestine, who say that Israel does not make mistakes?” Erekat wondered in a press statement.
“The Israeli justice system has repeatedly shown its involvement in the illegal colonial settlement project. It is therefore the responsibility of the international community to intervene immediately to stop the demolitions in Sur Baher and to hold Israel accountable for its repeated violations of international law.”
