Ismail Haneyya, the Palestinian premier in Gaza, conferred on Tuesday with the South African ambassador to Palestine on Israeli practices against the Palestinian people.
Haneyya hailed cooperation relations between South Africa and Palestine and briefed the ambassador on the Israeli occupation’s practices against the Palestine people topped by settlement activity, Judaization of occupied Jerusalem, and cruel treatment of prisoners.
He asked for South Africa’s intervention to curb such violations.
For his part, the ambassador said he was pleased to be in Gaza, stressing his country’s stable stand in support of the Palestine cause.
He said that he came to extend congratulations on the Palestinian victory over the Israeli aggression and over the admission of Palestine as a non-member observer state at the UN.
The envoy said that South Africa condemns Israeli practices especially the settlement drive in occupied Palestinian land and affirmed that his country would continue backing the Palestinian people until they regain their rights in full.
