New York, SANA-Dmitry Polyansky, the First Deputy Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN, has affirmed that the Palestinian people are constantly exposed to bloody tragedies as result of the Israeli use of violence and force.
Russia Today website quoted Polyansky as saying during a Security Council session last night on the situation in the Middle East: “According to the information received, the use of force by the Israeli authorities in the West Bank during the current year resulted in the killing of more than 130 Palestinians, which makes it the bloodiest year in nearly two decades”.
Polyansky added: The actions of the Israeli occupation authorities, including the construction of settlements and the confiscation of Palestinian property, as well as the use of violence, have resulted in effects that are difficult to remove for the Palestinian people and the occupied territories.
During the Security Council session, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Tor Wennesland, said: “The international community pays less attention to the Palestinian cause because of the crisis in Ukraine and other global developments, which has contributed to the exacerbation of the suffering of the Palestinians.”
