Security Council to discuss resolution on protection of Palestinians

New York (UNA-OIC) � The United Nations Security Council is scheduled to discuss on Monday a draft resolution calling for the provision of international protection for the Palestinian people.

The resolution, called for by Kuwait's Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Mansour Al-Otaibi, aimed at providing international protection to civilians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), including in the Gaza Strip, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

Otaibi said negotiations on the draft resolution would be scheduled on the level of experts on Monday. He added that the resolution will call for providing international protection to the people of OPT in addition to the lifting of the Israeli blockade on the Gaza Strip.

The resolution will also encourage further UN efforts to de-escalate the situation in the region and reinforce respect for international and humanitarian laws, the Kuwaiti envoy said.

The resolution, expressing concern over the exacerbating humanitarian crisis in Gaza, stresses the urgent need for a sustainable solution to the crisis in line with the international humanitarian law.
