Right-Wing Victory in Israel Overshadows Peace in Palestine
Speaking at the beginning of the session, Shtayyeh said that Israeli security forces killed more than 220 Palestinians, injured 9 000, and imprisoned 6 500 others throughout Palestine.
Adding to the killing of the Palestinian people is the destruction of their homes. The Prime Minister said that 832 buildings were demolished by the regime, while pointing to the 13 000 olive trees that were uprooted.
Shtayyeh also referred to the upcoming Israeli government headed by Benjamin Netanyahu, with concerns about the challenges posed to the Palestinian territory by growing Israeli extremism and racism.
Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh expects next year to see a breakthrough in the financial crisis.
In this regard, the Prime Minister said, "the threats of the next Israeli government will not frighten us." Shtayyeh added that the Palestinians had proven courage and equanimity in the face of criminal Israeli aggression.
The Palestinian people "will confront any usurpation of our right to land and homeland, and will protect our national liberation project with their sacrifices," Shtayyeh said.
Describing this scenario as a political battle, Shtayyeh said that the cause of the Palestinian people has the support of the world.
