The National Council for Human Rights receives the Qatari Minister of International Cooperation

Ambassador Moushira Khattab, President of the National Council for Human Rights (NCHR) received Minister of International Cooperation of the State of Qatar, Dr. Lulwa Al Khater and her accompanying delegation. The interview dealt with the tragic situation in the occupied Palestinian territories and human rights violations, including obstructing relief efforts and the arrival of aid.    Khattab appreciated the efforts made by both Egypt and Qatar to provide protection and relief in the face of great difficulties and condemned the forced displacement of Palestinian citizens and the attempt to change the population map and push the population to move towards the south, and that Israel bears full responsibility for fulfilling the rights of every citizen who falls within its jurisdiction without any discrimination. However, what we are witnessing violates international humanitarian law and the Fourth Geneva Convention and violates international human rights law and turning a blind eye to these violations and obstructing the entry of United Nations organizations confirms the double standards in imposing a commitment to enforcing human rights, confirming that forced displacement is what sparked the conflict. The Qatari Minister stated that Israel's narratives and fallacies began to be revealed to the Western world and that the Arab media played an important role in dismantling those narratives, as she indicated that a number of countries, such as Belgium, Spain and Norway, took clear positions in support of Palestine and the Palestinians. The meeting was attended by Ambassador Tarek Ali Al-Ansari, Ambassador of the State of Qatar in Cairo, Ambassador Khaled Al-Hardan, Chairman of the Qatari Committee for the Reconstruction of Gaza, and a high-level delegation from the Qatari Ministry of International Cooperation. From NCHR, Ambassador Dr. Mahmoud Karem, Vice President of NCHR, Ambassador Fahmi Fayed, Secretary-General of NCHR and Ambassador Ahmed Ismail, Councilor to the President of NCHR.
