IP- Belgian MP Simon Moutquin has called for imposing sanctions on the far-right Israeli government for committing war crimes against the Palestinian people, WAFA news agency reported.

Iran PressEurope: In a speech before his country’s parliament, Moutquin criticized the position of Belgium and the European Union towards what is happening in the occupied Palestinian territories, saying lenient policies towards Israel are tantamount to a license to kill.

He mentioned the recent attacks carried out by the Israeli army and settlers in Jenin, Huwara, and Nablus, adding that the year 2023 is the bloodiest for the Palestinian people in years.

“All this is happening under the most extreme right-wing government in its [Israel’s] history, where the settlers have become ministers, obtaining powers related to the Palestinian lands, and asserting without hesitation that they want death for the Arabs,” he continued.

Moutquin added: “The status quo is no longer acceptable. Allowing the formation of such a racist government amounts to losing all credibility in the face of the extreme right around the world. Most importantly, failure to act against these war crimes is a license to kill for the Israeli government, its army, and its settlers.”

He added that the Israeli government coalition agreement is very clear, as it stipulates the implementation of a series of measures, including the annexation of parts of the West Bank to Israel.

The Belgian MP asked: “What do we expect in the event of the seizure of the occupied Palestinian lands and the forced displacement of the population, as in Masafer Yatta, and the killing of journalists such as Shireen Abu Akleh?”

He concluded: “It is necessary to take a series of sanctions against the violence of Israeli settlers, including immediately banning the import of products from Israeli settlements, and summoning the Israeli ambassador for questioning about this unprecedented violence by the government she represents.”
