Muslim Council of Elders Strongly Condemns the Massacre Committed by the Israeli Occupation at Jabalia Camp and Renews Calls for Urgent International Action for a Ceasefire and to Save Innocent Civilians in Gaza Strip

The Muslim Council of Elders, under the Chairmanship of His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, condemns the massacre committed by the Israeli occupation forces against the Palestinian people in the Jabalia Refugee Camp, which resulted in hundreds of martyrs and wounded. The Council warns that the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip continues to cause a humanitarian catastrophe for innocent Palestinian civilians.

The Muslim Council of Elders reiterates its call to the Arab and Islamic worlds as well as the global community, international institutions, and all the free people of the world to urgently act to stop the Israeli occupation’s brutal and ongoing aggression against innocent civilians in the Gaza Strip, and for an immediate cessation of hostilities in accordance with the resolution adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on October 27, 2023.

The Council emphasizes that the continuation of this humanitarian crime against the Palestinian people along with the ongoing massacres against innocent civilians, and the loss of thousands of martyrs, most of them being women and children, constitute a blatant violation of international law and thwarts the aspirations of the Palestinian people who have been dreaming of peace and struggling for the establishment of an independent state and obtaining their legitimate rights for over seventy years.
