Saeb Erakat, Secretary-General of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), called on Israeli authorities to immediately and unconditionally release Palestinian prisoner and cancer patient Kamal Abu Wa'ar, who today tested positive for coronavirus. The PLO secretary general warned that an outbreak of corona virus inside prisons would bring about an inevitable catastrophe, which Israel is responsible for, saying it will lead to an implacable explosion.
RAMALLAH, July 11 (Xinhua) -- A senior Palestinian official said on Saturday that the international recognition of an independent Palestinian state will preserve the vision of the two-state solution. Saeb Erakat, Secretary General of Palestine Liberation Organization Executive Committee, called for forming an international coalition against the Israeli plan of annexing parts of the West Bank.
It is inhumane to live a permanent state of emergency through all the years of your life, but this has been the case for Palestine refugees following the Nakba, the Catastrophe of 1948, when the Zionist gangs forcibly uprooted them from their homeland and scattered them all over the world. With every renewed catastrophe, the state of emergency continues for Palestine refugees, their children, and grandchildren, either due to Israel's ongoing crimes inside occupied Palestine or due to security, political, and economic conditions and disturbances in host countries and beyond.
