Europeans for al-Quds Organization announced that it will hold a press conference on Thursday, February 23, in the Italian Parliament in Rome, to launch its annual report, entitled “Jerusalem in 2022: Acceleration in Judaization Policies.” The report outlines the Israeli violations in Jerusalem during the past year.
A number of Italian parliamentarians and personalities will participate in the conference. It will also include interventions on the seriousness of the Israeli violations in the city of Jerusalem and their violation of international humanitarian law.
Stefania Ascari, a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, Moni Ovadia, an Italian actor, singer, and writer, Romana Rubio, a journalist, and Michaela Arikali, a lawyer and human rights activist will participate in the conference.
It’s scheduled that a summary of the most important Israeli violations in Jerusalem documented in the annual report will be presented during the conference.
The invitation was extended to all Arab and Islamic embassies in Rome, the capital of Italy, noting that many embassies confirmed their presence, as well as many parliamentarians and journalists.
For his part, engineer Mohammad Hannoun, the chairman of Europeans for al-Quds organization, explained that the launch of the report comes at a time when the risks targeting Al-Aqsa Mosque and the entire city of Jerusalem are accelerating. This comes with the assumption of a coalition government that includes the most extreme right-wing groups that seek to implement many Judaization schemes that, if implemented, could cause an explosion and a wave of anger in the entire region.
He pointed out that the report is the result of great documentation efforts that continued throughout the year. It is a summation of the monthly reports in which Europeans for al-Quds monitors Israeli violations of human rights in the city of Jerusalem.
The launch of the report from the Italian Parliament comes to send a message to the European Union countries to stand up to their responsibilities and to force the occupying state to respect international law and UN resolutions, to stop encroaching on civilians and attempting to tamper with the cultural identity of Jerusalem, and to ensure that Jerusalemites can perform their religious rituals in mosques and churches freely.
