GAZA, (PIC)– First deputy speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council Dr. Ahmed Bahar has urged the Arab League to expedite issuing a UN Security Council resolution imposing a no-fly zone over the Gaza Strip to protect Palestinian civilians from Israeli crimes.

Describing the decision as an advanced step in the right direction, he said in a press release on Monday that it would pave the way before isolating Israel in the international arena.

He asked the Arab League to rally international support for the decision and to discuss its implementation mechanics.

Bahar stressed the importance of implementing Arab League resolutions concerning ending the siege on Gaza, opening the Rafah crossing permanently, and starting reconstruction of the beleaguered Strip.

In an earlier statement on Monday while extending condolences to the martyrs of the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, he blamed the feeble position of the international community for the recent Israeli military escalation against Gaza.

Bahar also said that resistance is guaranteed for all peoples under occupation by international law, adding that all Palestinian resistance factions were united in one trench against the Israeli aggression.
