Muslim Council of Elders Strongly Condemns the Israeli Occupation's Targeting of Displaced Persons' Camps in Rafah

The Muslim Council of Elders, under the chairmanship of His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, condemns the Israeli occupation's targeting of Palestinian refugee camps in Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, which resulted in many civilian casualties and injuries.

The Council calls on the international community and the UN Security Council to take urgent and serious action as well as assume their responsibilities in order to put an end to the ongoing Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip. It also calls for the re-opening of the Rafah border crossing to allow humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip. 

The Muslim Council of Elders reiterates its stance that establishing a just and comprehensive peace can only be achieved by ending the suffering of the Palestinian people, which has persisted for over seven decades, and by recognizing the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.
