The Muslim World League (MWL) voiced on Friday its profound disappointment at the failure to grant Palestine full membership in the United Nations.

In a statement, the MWL said this was a severe setback that deepens the suffering of Palestinians and emboldens Israel to continue its abuses.

The decision is a significant obstacle to achieving a fair and enduring peace in the region, it warned. Additionally, it strengthens Israel's oppressive practices against the Palestinian people.

The MWL reiterated its demand that the international community shoulder its responsibility to stop Israeli aggression against civilians in Gaza.

Additionally, it called for backing the Palestinians' self-determination and the creation of a sovereign Palestinian nation within the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem serving as its capital.

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) signed an executive program with the World Health Organization (WHO) to boost water and sanitation services in healthcare facilities in Yemen, reported the Saudi Press Agency on Tuesday.

The program, valued at $3.75 million, was signed during the 77th session of the WHO's General Assembly in Geneva.

The agreement was signed by Advisor to the Royal Court and KSrelief General Supervisor of Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Rabeeah and WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

It aims to implement various initiatives, including drilling solar-powered wells in ten healthcare facilities, providing potable water supplies, water quality monitoring, and treatment in 60 healthcare facilities, and conducting training on the operation and maintenance of water supplies.

The program includes the construction of a tower tank in Al-Khawkhah District in the Hodeidah Governorate and rehabilitation efforts to improve water, sanitation, and hygiene services in the Marib Governorate Hospital and Matnah Hospital in the Sanaa Governorate.

These efforts are a crucial part of Saudi Arabia's ongoing humanitarian and relief projects through KSrelief, which aim to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people amid the severe humanitarian crisis they are facing.
