Israel-Hamas War: What did the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia say about the Hamas-Israel war? – Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman said Saudi is with Palestinians amid war with Israel tlifwr
Israel Hamas War: Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) has said that his country stands with the Palestinian people. Early Tuesday morning, Saudi state media reported that MBS had spoken to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on phone. In a conversation with Abbas, the Saudi Prince said that he was trying to stop the war that started after Hamas’s sudden attack on Israel.
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman also told Abbas that Saudi Arabia ‘will stand with the Palestinian people in achieving their rights and achieving a just and lasting peace,’ Saudi Press Agency, the Saudi state news agency, reported.
The Palestinian terrorist group suddenly started attacking Israel from land, air and sea in the early hours of Saturday, in which more than 800 Israelis have died so far. In retaliation, Israel has launched rapid attacks on the Hamas-occupied Gaza Strip, in which 687 people have lost their lives so far.
Israel-Saudi peace talks affected by fighting
This fight between the two sides has started at a time when Saudi Arabia was on the verge of normalizing its relations with Israel. America is trying to reach a compromise between the two sides. In return, America is giving security guarantees to Saudi and will also cooperate in the development of its civilian nuclear program. But analysts say that the Israel-Hamas war has dealt a major blow to the Saudi-Israeli normalization talks.
Although Saudi Arabia may be talking to the Jewish country Israel, the issue of Palestine is still very important for it. Like other Muslim countries, Saudi also wants the Palestine-Israel issue to be resolved through a two-state resolution i.e. a separate country for the Palestinians.
There is a need to find a solution to Palestine- MBS
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman also said in a conversation with Fox News last month that the issue of Palestine is very important to the kingdom, which is home to Mecca and Medina, Islam’s holiest sites.
MBS had said, ‘We need to find a solution to Palestine. We need to make life easier for Palestinians.
The Saudi Press Agency also said that MBS also spoke by phone with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Jordan’s King Abdullah II and discussed the Israel-Hamas conflict.
