Decision on granting protection for the Palestinians

During the special session of the UN General Assembly, the decision on providing protection for the Palestinians was adopted with 8 negative, 45 abstention and 125 positive votes following the initiative of Turkey as the Term President of the OIC and Tunisia as President of the Arab Group.

The decision introduces some liabilities for both states and United Nations.

According to the decision, Secretary General of the UN was asked to prepare a report, within 60 days, regarding what is to be done to ensure security and peace of the Palestinian civilians.

The decision also condemned rocket attacks from the Gaza to the Israeli civilian areas besides the disproportionate use of force by Israel.  

The sound solidarity initiated with the determined position and initiatives of Turkey showed that the Palestinians would not be left in desolation across the serious international violations.
