The deputy Secretary-General of the Arab League Ahmed Bin Hali stated that the international protection of Palestinians has become an inevitable necessity, Sky News Arabia reported on Tuesday.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) called for an emergency meeting on the ministerial level to discuss the violations carried out by the Israeli occupation against Palestinians and the call was accepted by the Arab League.

The UAE's permanent representative to the league held the Israeli government legally responsible for all the war crimes committed against Palestinians and added that the perpetrators must be brought to international justice.

On Tuesday Sky News Arabia reported that Palestine has filed three complaints against Israel to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in protest of the Israeli violations.

This comes at a time when a wave of Israeli repressive measures against protesters has left more than 27 Palestinians dead, including a pregnant mother and her daughter.

Gaza has been the site of three Israeli aerial and ground offensives since 2008, but has remained mainly calm amid the recent unrest in the West Bank and occupied east Jerusalem until Friday.

Last summer alone, Israel’s 51-day assault on Gaza killed over 2,200 people and left more than 12,000 others injured. More than 100,000 people were displaced.
