Geneva, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia called on the international community and the Human Rights Council to take immediate action to ensure the protection of the Palestinian people from the grave violations they face, at the hands of the Israeli occupation, on the ground, and to hold Israel accountable as an occupying power for all the violations committed against the Palestinians.

Dr. Abdulaziz Al-Wassel, the Permanent Representative of the Kingdom to the United Nations, in Geneva, stressed in a speech before the Human Rights Council, the necessity of obligating Israel to respect international law and implement relevant international resolutions, while calling for compensation for all those affected by the heavy losses suffered by them, due to violations of the Israeli occupation forces.
