Palestinians condemn Morocco-Tel Aviv normalization of ties

Palestinian groups and movements unanimously condemned Morocco’s decision to normalize ties with the Zionist regime of Israel.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad movements condemned Morocco’s decision to normalize ties with Israel, describing it as a “betrayal” to the Palestinian cause.

“We trust that the Moroccan people will utterly refuse this normalization,” said Islamic Jihad.

Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qassem called the Moroccan decision to normalize “a sin.”

Bassam as-Salhi, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Executive Committee, condemned the deal.

“Any Arab retreat from the [2002] Arab Peace Initiative, which stipulates that normalization comes only after Israel ends its occupation of Palestinian and Arab lands, is unacceptable,” Salhi said, according to Al Jazeera.

Moroccan King Mohammed told Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in a phone call on Thursday that Rabat stands by a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a royal court statement said.

The king added that negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians are the only way to reach a final, lasting, and comprehensive solution to the conflict.

There was no mention of Abbas’s response to the Moroccan king’s message.
