The Council of the League of Arab States welcomed the announcement by Head of the Presidential Council, Mohammed Menfi, that Libya would join the legal team of South Africa to sue Israel for its violations against the Palestinian people.

The Council condemned in a statement the continued crimes of Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people, targeting tens of thousands of civilians, and subjecting the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip to a deadly siege that cuts off all means of life, which constitute the crime of genocide against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.

The statement called on the United States and the countries that support the Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people within the Security Council to adopt positions consistent with international law and international humanitarian law, a complete and sustainable ceasefire, and to oblige Israel to stop its aggression and withdraw from the Gaza Strip.

It warned of the danger of the occupying state planning and committing the crime of forced displacement of about two million Palestinian citizens, who have become displaced inside the Gaza Strip, and its intentions to complete their displacement by systematically pushing them out of the Palestinian territory toward the far south of the Gaza Strip, close to the border with Egypt.

The Council also called for the rapid implementation of Security Council Resolution No. 2720 (2023) and to take urgent steps to immediately allow the expanded, safe and unhindered delivery of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, and to create the necessary conditions for a sustainable cessation of hostilities.

It stressed that the Arab countries would not allow the "Nakba" scenario of 1948 to be repeated and could not tolerate Israeli plans to displace the Palestinian people, stressing that the necessary political, diplomatic, legal and economic steps ought to be taken to prevent such a scenario.

The Council also reaffirmed support for the joint Qatari-Egyptian efforts aimed at reaching a permanent ceasefire and restoring normal living conditions in the Gaza Strip. It decided to form a temporary open-membership committee of permanent delegates and the General Secretariat to go over Arab measures that could be taken at the legal, economic, political and diplomatic levels to activate and implement the contents of the resolution, issue its report and circulate it to countries and members within a week of its date, in addition to following up on the implementation of the resolution by the Secretary General of the League of Arab States.
