Palestine: Saudi Arabia calls for end to "Israeli state terrorism"

Saudi Arabia called on the international community to stop what it described as Israeli state terrorism against the Palestinian people.

It also denounced the crimes being committed by the Israeli occupation in defiance of United Nations resolutions.

In a statement issued after the Cabinet meeting, chaired by Crown Prince Sultan, the Kingdom expressed its deep concern over the worsening situation in the occupied Palestinian territories as a result of continuing Israeli atrocities against Palestinian civilians.

"The international community must take a decisive stand on what is currently happening in Palestine and adopt effective steps to protect the Palestinian people from Israeli state terrorism," the Saudi Press Agency reported, quoting the Cabinet statement.
