Abbas called on President Biden and his administration to intervene immediately and urgently to assume their responsibilities, given the seriousness of the situation following the Israeli measures in all the Palestinian territories, especially in Jerusalem, the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

The Palestinian president stressed the need for an immediate cessation of Israeli attacks and full respect for the legal and historical situation in Jerusalem and in Haram al-Sharif, holding the Israeli occupation government fully responsible for the deterioration of the situation.

Abbas pointed out the importance of creating a political horizon that leads to the end of the Israeli occupation of the land of the State of Palestine, with its capital in East Jerusalem, and called for the prompt reopening of the United States Consulate in the city of Jerusalem, according to the commitment of the US administration.

In this context, Abbas analyzed, in a telephone call with the Secretary General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, the events in the Palestinian territories, especially in Jerusalem, given the tension in the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa mosque.
