Statement by the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM)
The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) has censured the continuation of human rights violations by the Israeli regime, its illegal settlement construction in the occupied West Bank and the blockade of the Gaza Strip.In a statement, read out by Iranian Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations Es’haq Al-e-Habib at a special committee of the General Assembly on Friday, the movement called on the international community to adopt an “immediate and practical” measure to put an end to the Israeli regime’s inhumane acts.Al-e-Habib voiced the movement’s deep concern about the Israeli regime’s mass arrest and imprisonment of Palestinians without trial and the destruction of their homes.“The Non-Aligned Movement calls for the implementation of this report’s recommendations, respect for human rights and international humanitarian law by the Israeli regime in the Palestinian occupied territories and an end to the regime’s impunity,” he said.He pointed to the violation of the human rights of the Palestinian people, including women and children, and urged the immediate release of all Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.The Iranian official urged the international community, particularly the UN Security Council, to take a “swift and practical” measure to oblige the Israeli regime to completely end its illegal settlement construction.The NAM calls on Tel Aviv to end the illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip “at the earliest and without any precondition” and reopen all border crossing to Gaza in accordance with humanitarian regulations and the US resolutions.The movement insists that real peace talks with Israel cannot be held due to the continuation of the regime’s illegal measures in Palestine, the breach of human rights in the occupied territories and the intensification of conflicts.On November 6, the Israeli NGO, Peace Now, reported that the Israeli regime is planning to build over 1,200 new settler units in East Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and the West Bank despite international criticism.The Israeli settlements are considered illegal by the UN and most countries as the territories where they are located have been occupied by Israel since a war in 1967, and are hence seen as being subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbid construction on occupied lands
