On behalf of the Palestinian People; men, women, children, and elderly, let  me  express our  sincere  gratitude to the brotherly  People of Pakistan and it’s great  Army,  all  respect  to  the  Honor  Excellencies,  President   of  Pakistan,

Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, all Ministers, Members of Parliament, leaders of the parties, for their solidarity with the Palestinians, for their courageous efforts to support our cause for a free and independent State of Palestine.

I want to convey my heartfelt gratitude for their remarkable efforts to support the Palestinian freedom and condemn the Israeli atrocities being carried out against innocent and unarmed Palestinians while urging the international community to take concrete and immediate steps for resolution of the Palestine issue.

Your efforts are greatly appreciated for speaking up and pushing for an emergency  session  of  the  OIC meeting  and  UN General Assembly to hold a cease-fire,   de-escalation   and   an   end   to   atrocities.   Pakistan  played  an important role in building, steering the discussion and building a consensus. This historical act will be remembered, not only by the Palestinians, but the entire world, and it will be a history to remember for generations.

Another historical day that Palestinians will never forget, May 21,  Palestinian Solidarity Day, that Decided by Prime Minister of Pakistan in solidarity with Palestine and condemnation of barbaric Israeli attacks on the innocent  civilians   in  the  occupied  Palestinian  Territories,  as   well  as   the decision of the Pakistani Parliament passing a unanimous resolution condemning Israel’s “systematic oppression” of the people of Palestine and demanded the UN to probe the human rights violations.

I   convey   warm   regards   to   many   delegates     from   the   GovernmentParliament, Pakistani, NGOs and  from different  parties who have  visited  the Embassy to express their solidarity. We thank you all for sparing your valuable  time in  order  to show  solidarity  with  us  during  this difficult time that we went through due to the series of attacks by Israeli occupation forces on innocent people, illegal settlement of the Israelis, and forced evictions of Palestinians.  All  these  acts  are  serious  violations  of  human  rights  and International law. It’s a real humanitarian crisis.

I am extremely grateful to all the people of Pakistan for the unwavering support you have given to Palestinians, your message of unity has strengthened and encouraged the spirits and boost the morale of the beleaguered Palestinians. 

Although the war on Gaza ended but our struggle to get our freedom continues. INSHALLAH by working with our Pakistani brothers side by side we will free Palestine and we will all pray together in Al-Aqsa Mosque in Al-Quds Al-Shareef, the capital of Palestine.

May ALLAH accept our martyrs in Heaven and grant speedy recovery to those who got injured due to the Israeli bombardment. May Allah bless Pakistan.

Ahmed Rabei, Ambassador of Palestine
