State of Palestine: Israel has no rightful claim or sovereignty over Jerusalem


The State of Palestine underlined today that the rights of the Palestinian people, including the right to self-determination, are indivisible from preserving Jerusalem’s unique character.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates released a statement that read, “The international community’s view on Jerusalem is clear: Israel has no lawful claim or authority over Jerusalem, including occupied East Jerusalem, its Old City, and its sacred sites.”

Israel, the occupying Power, does not have the right to initiate diplomatic relations or to ask other countries to establish diplomatic missions anywhere in the City, the statement continued.

The international legal status of Jerusalem, the responsibility of States to respect this status, and the illegality of moving embassies and diplomatic offices to Jerusalem have all been definitively and authoritatively established by the UN Security Council and General Assembly since 1947.

In its advisory opinion on the Israeli Apartheid Wall, the International Court of Justice also reiterated that Israel is an occupying power in Jerusalem.

According to the Foreign Ministry, “all States, particularly Permanent Members of the Security Council, have legal, political, and moral obligations as a result of Israel’s existence as an occupying Power, which is an established and irrefutable legal truth.”

In light of this, the State of Palestine declares that it will use every legal, diplomatic, and political tool at its disposal to defend Jerusalem’s position.
