Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Jasem Mohamed Albudaiwi, expressed his strong condemnation and rejection of the decision of the Israeli Security Cabinet regarding the expansion of settlement operations in the West Bank.

Providing a statement to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), Albudaiwi emphasised the categorical rejection by the GCC of the continuous and systematic violations by the Israeli occupation forces of international law and resolutions of international legitimacy, noting that the continuation of the Israeli occupation authorities of these dangerous policies will lead to instability and insecurity in the region.

Furthermore, he reiterated the firm and steadfast position of the GCC in supporting the Palestinian cause and reaching a solution based on ending the Israeli occupation and establishing an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with the relevant United Nations (UN) resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.
