Palestine Petitions UN, Demands Israel Leaves Territories

The State of Palestine has petitioned the United Nations, demanding that Israel leave what it describes as “its territory” amid the ongoing conflict.

On October 8, the Palestinian militant group Hamas attacked Israel in a shocking move. Over 1,500 people have been confirmed dead in the conflict with fears that the death toll could increase.

During a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, Palestinian Ambassador to Nigeria Abdullahp Shawesh urged the UN to take action against international law on Israel and compel her to seize its occupation of Palestinian territories.

Shawesh stated that the applicability of the law will bring a halt to the conflict, otherwise, the Palestinians will continue to exercise what he describes as their legitimate right to liberate and defend themselves.

According to him, Israelis have continued to pulverize Gaza, bombing the third oldest church in the world, killing nearly a thousand Palestinians, out of which 140 are children and 105 women. He stated that 4,100 are injured while 123,000 are currently internally displaced with the numbers expected to rise.

As Israel orders a siege on the Gaza Strip cutting off electricity, water, food, and fuel, videos continue to show explosions leveling buildings.

The Palestinian ambassador however insisted that they are not deterred but determined to defeat and end Israeli aggression and occupation of their territories.
