Spain prepares announcement of recognition of Palestinian state

Although it will be a formal step, Spain’s Council of Ministers will announce the recognition of the Palestinian state on Tuesday, as Israel’s massacre in Rafah is deplored today.

The situation of the right wing in defence of Israel became unpresentable on Monday with the attacks by Tel Aviv’s military forces on a refugee camp in Rafah, in the Gaza Strip.

Spanish Foreign Minister José Manuel Albares today urged Israel to stop its offensive in Rafah, as requested by the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Also, on social networks, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in Spain condemned the Israeli actions against civilians in Gaza.

«The offensive in #Gaza continues to target civilians. Civilian casualties, displacement and destruction of homes and essential civilian infrastructure continue unabated. Nowhere is safe in Gaza, we need an IMMEDIATE ceasefire,» UNRWA demanded.

In view of the ICJ ruling on the attacks on Palestinians, the Spanish government warned Israel that the measures adopted by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) are binding and therefore mandatory.

In this sense, Albares remarked that the orders agreed by the ICJ to halt the military operation in Rafah, at the southern tip of Gaza, are binding.

«The ICJ’s precautionary measures, including the cessation of Israel’s offensive in Rafah, are mandatory. We demand their application», José Manuel Albares wrote on the social network X.

«The suffering of the Gazans and the violence must end,» Albares said.

The ICJ, following South Africa’s request, ordered Israel on Friday to halt its operation in Rafah and any other action that causes the «physical destruction, in whole or in part» of the Palestinian people in Gaza.

It also demanded that the Hamas group immediately release all hostages captured in its 7 October attack on Israel.

Its ruling is binding, although it has no real capacity to enforce it in practice.

Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez announced on Wednesday that he would recognise Palestine as a state on 28 May, together with Ireland and Norway.

Sánchez said he hoped this gesture would contribute to a future of peace and stability in all the countries of the region.
