Foreign Affairs: 'US crossed all red lines'

Sept. 8, 2018 5:14 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 9, 2018 11:30 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned, on Saturday afternoon, the United States' decision to cut aid to Palestinian hospitals in occupied East Jerusalem saying that the US has "crossed all red lines."

The ministry said in a statement that "the new US policy aims to liquidate the Palestinian cause under false and meager pretexts through the so-called 'Deal of the Century'."

The US announced, earlier on Saturday, that it will cancel $20 million in aid to Palestinian hospitals of occupied East Jerusalem.

"This dangerous and unjustified American escalation has crossed all red lines and is considered a direct aggression against the Palestinian people, including the humanitarian aspect since it threatens the lives of thousands of Palestinian patients and their families, and could affect the future and livelihoods of thousands of employees of these hospitals."

The ministry said that the decision is "morally bankrupt and inhumane that rarely happens even by the most oppressive and totalitarian regimes in the world."

In its statement, the ministry called upon the international community to take a stand from "American injustice" against the Palestinian people and their rights.

The ministry also urged the international community to make up for the US decisions by allocating direct assistance to the Palestinians.
