Saudi Arabia Urges International World to Force Israel to Stop Attacks on Palestine

Ramallah - Saudi Arabia on Tuesday (9/8/2022) demanded international action to stop the deadly attacks by the Israeli Armed Forces against the Palestinian people.

At a Cabinet meeting in Jeddah chaired by King Salman, Saudi ministers urged the international community to assume its responsibilities and exert all efforts to end the conflict.

Saudi Arabia's call came as three Palestinians were killed and 40 injured in an Israeli attack on Nablus in the northern West Bank. A Palestinian, 17-year-old Moamen Jaber, died of his injuries at a hospital in Hebron. He was shot by Israeli soldiers in an earlier clash in Bab Al-Zawiyah.

The four deaths take the number of people killed this year as a result of attacks by Israeli forces in the West Bank and Gaza Strip to 130. "From Nablus to Hebron, after Gaza and Jenin, the occupation continues to commit open crimes against our people in all the occupied territories," Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh was quoted as saying by Arab News.

Tuesday's death toll came after elite Israeli forces surrounded a house in the old city of Nablus in the morning. The Israeli military approached Ibrahim Al-Nabulsi of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Fatah's military wing, and at least one other member of the group named Islam Sabbouh.

After Nabulsi refused requests to surrender, Israeli forces opened fire and attacked the house with Matador anti-shirt missiles, killing those inside. Another Palestinian, Hussein Jamal Taha, 16, was also killed. Thousands of Palestinians took part in the three funerals, the largest in Nablus for 20 years.

Violent clashes between Palestinians and Israeli forces broke out in the West Bank, wounding at least 20 civilians, mostly young men.

The new attack came less than 48 hours after Israel halted its military operation in the Gaza Strip, which claimed the lives of 46 Palestinians, and injured more than 300 civilians, including women, children and the elderly.

Nabil Aburudina, spokesman for the Palestinian Authority, condemned the killings in Nablus and said the Israeli occupation was approaching a comprehensive confrontation with all Palestinians through its aggression. Aburudina said the Israeli government is not interested in achieving peace and stability, and is working to shed Palestinian blood to achieve gains in Israel's internal politics.
