Today, Morocco reaffirmed its support for the Palestinian cause. Mustapha Baitas, a spokesperson for the Moroccan government, emphasized the nation’s “clear” and “constant” stance in favor of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
During a news conference that followed today’s government council, Baitas stated, “Morocco’s position on the Palestinian struggle is clear and consistent.
He cited support measures carried out on the king’s orders, such as action done by Morocco’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Bayt Mal Al Quds Agency to help the Palestinian cause. Morocco has long repeated its consistent support for the Palestinian struggle on “numerous occasions,” he claimed.
Morocco has constantly reaffirmed its support for the Palestinian cause despite the restoration of diplomatic relations with Israel in late 2020.
The OIC’s Council of Foreign Ministers’ 49th session took place this past March, and the nation of North Africa reaffirmed its “principled” stance in favor of “the just Palestinian cause.”
At the occasion, Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs stated, “The Kingdom, in light of developments in the Palestinian territories, reaffirms the centrality of the just Palestinian cause and its firm and consistent position towards it.”
Many Moroccans have lamented the death of hundreds of Palestinians as a result of Israeli forces’ string of airstrikes, including women and children.
Converging sources claim that 25 Palestinians have died as a result of Israeli airstrikes as of Tuesday, and several further claim that up to 80 Palestinians have been injured.
As a fresh chapter in “the series of horrific occupation crimes against the defenseless Palestinian people, especially women and children,” Qatar has denounced the assaults.
Many other nations have harshly denounced the assaults and warned against future regional escalation, including the UAE, Oman, Jordan, and Egypt.
Although Baitas avoided explicitly addressing the most recent developments in the Israel-Palestine conflict, it was evident from his remarks that Morocco supports the Palestinian people as they endure frequent raids and airstrikes on their houses.
