The Muslim World League (MWL) welcomed the advisory opinion issued by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) regarding Israel’s policies and practices in the occupied Palestinian territories, affirming the illegality of the Israeli presence in the occupied Palestinian territories for 57 years.
In a statement, MWL Secretary-General and Chairman of the Association of Muslim Scholars Sheikh Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa stressed the importance of this decision, which is a positive step towards the human and legal right of the Palestinian people to reach a just and comprehensive solution to their cause and to ensure obtaining their legitimate rights to self-determination and establishing their independent state in accordance with the Arab Peace Initiative and relevant international legitimacy resolutions, SPA reported.

The Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Jasem Mohamed Albudaiwi, also welcomed the opinion issued by the International Court of Justice in The Hague, saying that it confirms and reinforces the Palestinian people's attainment of their legitimate and legal rights in accordance with international and United Nations resolutions to regain the Palestinian territories seized by the Israeli occupation forces
He pointed out that the settlement decisions and attempts to change the geography carried out by the Israeli occupation forces are illegitimate measures that do not enjoy any regional or international recognition, and do not change anything on the ground, stressing that the seized Palestinian territories will remain Palestinian and an inherent right of the Palestinian people.
Moreover, Albudaiwi reiterated the firm stances of the GCC countries towards the Palestinian issue, and support for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within the borders of June 4, 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and support for the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to obtain their state.
