The secretary-general of the Arab League has warned on Tuesday Israel against policies he described as forcefully displacing Palestinians from the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
Ahmed Aboul Gheit decried what he called an “Israeli mentality” to try and seize land the Palestinians want for their future state.
He warned any seizure of the Gaza Strip or the West Bank by Israel would mean “a confrontation for the next thousand years.”
“The United States must order Israel to stop these policies or otherwise the Middle East will explode in an unprecedented way,” he said at the World Government Summit in Dubai.
He also called on Israel to “empty the settlements” in Palestinian land as well.
