RIYADH — Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal Bin Farhan said that what is happening in Gaza is collective punishment carried out by Israel.
In a press conference following the Arab-Islamic summit, Prince Faisal stated that the war in Gaza must cease, and peace can only be achieved through the Palestinian state.
Responding to journalists’ questions, the Saudi foreign minister emphasized that some countries justify Israel’s violations of international law.
He pointed out that they closely monitor the double standards of the West and evaluate their positions.
The coordination between Arab and Islamic countries regarding Gaza is significant, and the shift in positions is not sufficient, he affirmed, emphasizing the need to stop the war and protect civilians.
He stressed the continued pressure on the double standards and the international community’s reluctance, while also insisting on the necessity of creating an opportunity for peace.
“We call for peace, while the other party moves away from it,” he concluded.
