The Permanent Representative of Palestine to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, has sent three identical letters to the UN Secretary-General, the President of the UN Security Council for this month (the United States), and the President of the UN General Assembly, demanding an end to the ongoing human rights abuses and crimes against humanity committed by Israel, against the Palestinian people.

In his letters, Mansour urged the international community, including the Security Council, to immediately intervene in line with international law, including relevant UN resolutions, to provide protection to the Palestinian people, especially children whose lives are at grave risk due to this illegal Israeli colonial occupation and apartheid.

He stressed the importance of providing the protection that all civilians are entitled to under international humanitarian law and UN resolutions, including Resolution 904, which called on Israel to “confiscate arms, with the aim of preventing illegal acts of violence by Israeli settlers.”

Mansour also called for taking measures to ensure the safety and protection of Palestinian civilians in the occupied territories, including a temporary international presence.
