The foreign ministers of nine Arab countries issue a joint statement calling on the UN Security Council to implement an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

The United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Egypt and Morocco blast Israel for killing civilians in Gaza, arguing that “self-defense does not justify violations of international law, and deliberate disregard for the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.”

They also condemn the displacement of Palestinians, and accuse Israel of implementing “collective punishment” against the Palestinians.
