Mahmoud al-Aloul, vice president of the Fatah Movement, responded to the UN Security Council’s resolution requesting a cease-fire in Gaza by stressing how important it will be to wait 48 hours to see if Israel follows the decision.

Al-Aloul said, “It is frankly expected” that Israel will not follow the resolution, expressing doubt about its compliance.

Speaking in Cairo, Al-Aloul emphasised how urgent it is to put an end to the violence in Gaza. He issued a warning against the prolongation of hostilities, pointing out the possibility of more tragedies similar to the attack on October 7 that left many dead and several others kidnapped when Hamas militants struck villages in southern Israel.

Tensions increased when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed the agreement and vowed to continue the conflict. Al-Aloul denounced the violence that has persisted, calling it a “extraordinary injustice” that could worsen Gaza’s humanitarian predicament.

Al-Aloul promoted a political solution amid calls for peace, stressing the significance of a two-state solution to give Palestinians hope. In order to address the worsening situation in Gaza, Netanyahu demanded greater Arab support and involvement.

The delegation from Fatah’s central committee, led by Al-Aloul, visited Egypt to underscore regional initiatives aimed at resolving the Gaza situation. During meetings with Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit, Al-Aloul emphasised the necessity of international intervention and assistance to establish a long-lasting cease-fire and open the door for a political settlement to the conflict.
