Muslim Council of Elders Welcomes the International Court of Justice's Ruling Demanding the Immediate Halt of Israeli Aggression on Rafah

The Muslim Council of Elders, under the chairmanship of His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, welcomes the International Court of Justice's ruling ordering Israel to immediately halt its military offensive in Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, which has exacerbated the humanitarian catastrophe in the region.

The Muslim Council of Elders reiterates its call for an immediate end to the aggression on Gaza, which has resulted in the deaths and injuries of tens of thousands of innocent civilians. It also emphasizes the urgent need for the sustained and unobstructed delivery of humanitarian and relief aid to Gaza, and urges Israel to comply with the International Court of Justice's ruling to keep the Rafah border crossing open for humanitarian assistance.

Furthermore, the Muslim Council of Elders calls on the international community to take responsibility and end the suffering of the Palestinian people, which has persisted for over seven decades, and to recognize their legitimate right to establish an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.
