United Nations Observes International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People

On the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, the United Nations urges member states to extend their support and raise awareness about the Palestinian cause. This day serves as a stark reminder of the historical and ongoing challenges faced by Palestinians, and the Nakba, a significant displacement of Palestinian Arabs following the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948.

A Global Call to Action

The Day of Solidarity comes at a time when violence is escalating in Israel and Gaza, prompting an urgent call for justice and peace. The Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People plays a pivotal role in spotlighting the rights of the Palestinian people, and the commemoration of this day is a key component in this advocacy.

The Unresolved Question of Palestine

Despite the dark chapters in their history and the current humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza, the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People provides an opportunity to refocus global attention on the unresolved question of Palestine and the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people. Heads of state, government officials, and organizations are brought together to reaffirm international solidarity with the Palestinian people and their right to self-determination.

Support for a Two-State Solution

The United Nations emphasizes the need for a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, with Jerusalem as the capital of both states. The international community is urged to support this solution as an irreversible and necessary move. This call for solidarity 'must start' with a humanitarian ceasefire, unrestricted access for aid, and protection of civilians.

International Solidarity in Action

Hundreds of thousands of people across the world marked the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, calling for an end to Israeli atrocities and demanding the creation of a free Palestine state. The UN Secretary-General's message, alongside the vital work of the UNRWA, is highlighted in the context of international solidarity with Palestine.
