Morocco Supports All Initiatives to Establish Long-Term Ceasefire in Gaza

Morocco strongly supports all initiatives aimed at achieving a long-term ceasefire in Gaza, providing humanitarian relief, and safeguarding people, Morocco’s Head of Government Aziz Akhannouch said on Tuesday.

Speaking at the high-level International Conference on the Urgent Humanitarian Response to Gaza, held in the Dead Sea region, Akhanouch called for a serious and constructive approach to these initiatives, as well as the conditions required to establish a two-state solution.

“The terrible numbers of civilian casualties, immense destruction, and tales of on-the-ground tragedies cannot adequately convey the situation in Gaza. It is an unprecedented humanitarian disaster, with over 2.3 million people in Gaza living in deplorable conditions,” Akhannouch said.

The head of government emphasized the catastrophic conditions in Gaza, which have been aggravated by the prolonged embargo and limited access to aid.

King Mohammed V, Chairman of the Al-Quds Committee, had ordered the immediate delivery of humanitarian aid to Palestinians in Gaza and Al-Quds, as well as increased scholarships for Palestinian students at Moroccan institutions, the head of Government added.

Akhannouch reiterated Morocco’s commitment, saying: “The Kingdom of Morocco is fully prepared to continue assisting and supporting the Palestinians. Aid intended to save lives and alleviate suffering should never be held hostage by political disputes.”

He underscored the importance of guaranteeing the smooth and unhindered distribution of humanitarian supplies across all border points, a theme often emphasized by King Mohammed VI.

Morocco also urges that UN agencies, particularly UNRWA, be allowed to carry out their humanitarian missions without interference.

Akhannouch decried all attempts at forced displacement and targeting of civilians, regardless of the reason or pretext.

He reaffirmed Morocco’s longstanding position, emphasizing the justness of the Palestinian cause and support for the Palestinian people’s legitimate rights to establish an independent State within 1967 borders, with East Al-Quds as its capital, based on the two-State solution.
